Proverbs 25

Proverbs 25:1 NIV
These are more proverbs of Solomon, compiled by the men of Hezekiah king of Judah:

Proverbs 25:4-5 NIV
Remove the dross from the silver, and a silversmith can produce a vessel; [5] remove wicked officials from the king’s presence, and his throne will be established through righteousness.

Proverbs 25:6-8 NIV
Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence, and do not claim a place among his great men; [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 [8] do not bring hastily to court, for what will you do in the end if your neighbor puts you to shame?

Proverbs 25:11-12 NIV
Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a ruling rightly given. [12] Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.

Proverbs 25:14-15 NIV
Like clouds and wind without rain is one who boasts of gifts never given. [15] Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.

Proverbs 25:17-19 NIV
Seldom set foot in your neighbor’s house—too much of you, and they will hate you. [18] Like a club or a sword or a sharp arrow is one who gives false testimony against a neighbor. [19] Like a broken tooth or a lame foot is reliance on the unfaithful in a time of trouble.

Proverbs 25:21-22 NIV
If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. [22] In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.

Proverbs 25:24,26 NIV
Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife. [26] Like a muddied spring or a polluted well are the righteous who give way to the wicked.

Proverbs 25:28 NIV
Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.
