    King James Bible - Proverbs 25:12

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

    World English Bible

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

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 25:12

    As an
    earring of gold and a bright pearl, so is he that reproveth the wise, and the obedient ear.

    Webster's Bible Translation

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

    Original Hebrew

    נזם
    5141 זהב 2091 וחלי 2481 כתם 3800 מוכיח 3198 חכם 2450 על 5921 אזן 241 שׁמעת׃ 8085

    Job 42:11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:12

    Como zarcillo de oro y joyel de oro fino, es el que reprende al sabio que tiene oído dócil.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 25:12

    Verse 12. As an ear-ring of
    gold ] I believe µzn nezem to mean the nose-ring with its pendants; the left nostril is pierced, and a ring put through it, as in the ear. This is very common in almost every part of the East, among women of condition. This is a farther illustration of the above metaphor.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. [As] an
    earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold , etc.] As a golden earring, when first put on, gives pain and uneasiness; but, being well hung and fixed, is very ornamental, being of fine gold, and especially when any jewels are upon it; which may be meant by the ornament, as the word is rendered, ( Song of Solomon 7:1); [so is] a wise reprover upon an obedient ear ; such is the reproof of a wise man, which is seasonably given, in a fit and proper manner; and which appears to proceed from love, and is designed for good, and done in great affection and faithfulness: this, though it may be a little grating to the ear at first, yet, when well considered and received, instead of leaving any infamy or reproach on the person reproved, it is an ornament to him, as well as reflects honour upon the reprover. It may be rendered, “[so is] he that reproveth a wise man, upon” or “with an obedient ear” f681 ; a wise man that has an obedient or hearing ear, who is so wise as to altered to reproofs given him, and which he takes kindly, and receives profit and advantage from them; (see Proverbs 9:8 15:31).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11, 12 - A word of
    counsel, or reproof, rightly spoken, is especially beautiful as fine fruit becomes still more beautiful in silver baskets.
