Selected Verses from Proverbs 25 (ESV)
6 Do not put yourself forward in the king’s presence
or stand in the place of the great,
7 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.
19 Trusting in a treacherous man in time of trouble
is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips.
