Proverbs 25

RHE 1 These are also parables of Solomon, which the men of Ezechias, king of Juda, copied out. NIV 1 These are more proverbs of Solomon, compiled by the men of Hezekiah king of Judah: RHE 2 It is the glory of God to conceal the word, and the glory of kings to search out the speech. NIV 2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings. RHE 3 The heaven above and the earth beneath, and the heart of kings is unsearchable. NIV 3 As the heavens are high and the earth is deep, so the hearts of kings are unsearchable. RHE 4 Take away the rust from silver, and there shall come forth a most pure vessel: NIV 4 Remove the dross from the silver, and a silversmith can produce a vessel; RHE 5 Take away wickedness from the face of the king, and his throne shall be established with justice. NIV 5 remove wicked officials from the king’s presence, and his throne will be established through righteousness. RHE 6 Appear not glorious before the king, and stand not in the place of great men. NIV 6 Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence, and do not claim a place among his great men; RHE 7 For it is better that it should be said to thee: Come up hither; than that thou shouldst be humbled before the prince. NIV 7 it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,” than for him to humiliate you before his nobles. What you have seen with your eyes RHE 8 The things which thy eyes have seen, utter not hastily in a quarrel: lest afterward thou mayst not be able to make amends, when thou hast dishonoured thy friend. NIV 8 do not bring hastily to court, for what will you do in the end if your neighbor puts you to shame? RHE 9 Treat thy cause with thy friend, and discover not the secret to a stranger: NIV 9 If you take your neighbor to court, do not betray another’s confidence, RHE 10 Lest he insult over thee, when he hath heard it, and cease not to upbraid thee. Grace and friendship deliver a man: keep these for thyself, lest thou fall under reproach. NIV 10 or the one who hears it may shame you and the charge against you will stand. RHE 11 To speak a word in due time, is like apples of gold on beds of silver. NIV 11 Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a ruling rightly given. RHE 12 As an earring of gold and a bright pearl, so is he that reproveth the wise, and the obedient ear. NIV 12 Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear. RHE 13 As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to him that sent him, for he refresheth his soul. NIV 13 Like a snow-cooled drink at harvest time is a trustworthy messenger to the one who sends him; he refreshes the spirit of his master. RHE 14 As clouds, and wind, when no rain followeth, so is the man that boasteth, and doth not fulfil his promises. NIV 14 Like clouds and wind without rain is one who boasts of gifts never given. RHE 15 By patience a prince shall be appeased, and a soft tongue shall break hardness. NIV 15 Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone. RHE 16 Thou hast found honey, eat what is sufficient for thee, lest being glutted therewith thou vomit it up. NIV 16 If you find honey, eat just enough— too much of it, and you will vomit. RHE 17 Withdraw thy foot from the house of thy neighbour, lest having his fill he hate thee. NIV 17 Seldom set foot in your neighbor’s house— too much of you, and they will hate you. RHE 18 A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour, is like a dart and a sword and a sharp arrow. NIV 18 Like a club or a sword or a sharp arrow is one who gives false testimony against a neighbor. RHE 19 To trust in an unfaithful man in the time of trouble, is like a rotten tooth, and weary foot, NIV 19 Like a broken tooth or a lame foot is reliance on the unfaithful in a time of trouble. RHE 20 And one that looseth his garment in cold weather. As vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to a very evil heart. As a moth doth by a garment, and a worm by the wood: so the sadness of a man consumeth the heart. NIV 20 Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day, or like vinegar poured on a wound, is one who sings songs to a heavy heart. RHE 21 If thy enemy be hungry, give him to eat: if he thirst, give him water to drink: NIV 21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. RHE 22 For thou shalt heap hot coals upon his head, and the Lord will reward thee. NIV 22 In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you. RHE 23 The north wind driveth away rain, as doth a sad countenance a backbiting tongue. NIV 23 Like a north wind that brings unexpected rain is a sly tongue—which provokes a horrified look. RHE 24 It is better to sit in a corner of the housetop: than with a brawling woman, and in a common house. NIV 24 Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife. RHE 25 As cold water to a thirsty soul, so are good tidings from a far country. NIV 25 Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land. RHE 26 A just man falling down before the wicked, is as a fountain troubled with the foot and a corrupted spring. NIV 26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted well are the righteous who give way to the wicked. RHE 27 As it is not good for a man to eat much honey, so he that is a searcher of majesty shall be overwhelmed by glory. NIV 27 It is not good to eat too much honey, nor is it honorable to search out matters that are too deep. RHE 28 As a city that lieth open and is not compassed with walls, so is a man that cannot refrain his own spirit in speaking. NIV 28 Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.
