Book 20 : PROVERBS - Chapter 025


It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter


The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable


Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer


Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness


Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men


For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen


Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame


Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another


Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away


A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver


As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear


As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters


Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain


By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone


Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it


Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee


A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow


Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint


As he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to an heavy heart


If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink


For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee


The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue


It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house


As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country


A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring


It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory


He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls
