Self Glory – Proverbs 25

Selected Verses from Proverbs 25 (ESV)

Do not put yourself forward in the king’s presence
    or stand in the place of the great,
for (I)it is better to be told, “Come up here,”
    than to be put lower in the presence of a noble.

11 (L)A word fitly spoken
    is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.

14 Like (P)clouds and wind without rain
    is a man who (Q)boasts of a gift he does not give.

19 Trusting in a treacherous man in time of trouble
    is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips.

21 (X)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 (Y)burning coals on his head,
    and the Lord will reward you.

27 It is (AD)not good to eat much honey,
    nor is it glorious to (AE)seek one’s own glory.[c]
