Proverbs 25:20-28 RSV

20 He who sings songs to a heavy heart is like one who takes off a garment on a cold day, and like vinegar on a wound.
21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
22 for you will heap coals of fire on his head, and the LORD will reward you.
23 The north wind brings forth rain; and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
24 It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
25 Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
27 It is not good to eat much honey, so be sparing of complimentary words.
28 A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.
