25:1 These also are proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.
25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
25:3 As the heavens for height, and the earth for depth, So the hearts of kings are unsearchable.
25:5 Take away the wicked from the king`s presence, And his throne will be established in righteousness.
25:7 For it is better that it be said to you, "Come up here," Than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince, Whom your eyes have seen.
25:8 Don`t be hasty in bringing charges to court. What will you do in the end when your neighbor shames you?
25:9 Debate your case with your neighbor, And don`t betray the confidence of another;
25:10 Lest one who hears it put you to shame, And your bad reputation never depart.
25:11 A word fitly spoken Is like apples of gold in settings of silver.
25:12 As an ear-ring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, So is a wise reprover to an obedient ear.
25:16 Have you found honey? Eat as much as is sufficient for you, Lest you eat too much, and vomit it.
25:17 Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor`s house, Lest he be weary of you, and hate you.
25:18 A man who gives false testimony against his neighbor Is like a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow.
25:24 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, Than to share a house with a contentious woman.
25:26 Like a muddied spring, and a polluted well, So is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
25:27 It is not good to eat much honey; Nor is it honorable to seek ones own honor.
25:28 Like a city that is broken down and without walls Is a man whose spirit is without restraint.
