1
These too are proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah, king of Judah, copied.
2
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and the glory of kings to investigate a matter.
3
As the heaven is high and the earth is deep, so the hearts of kings cannot be investigated.
4
Remove impurities from silver, and a vessel will be produced for a silversmith.
5
Remove the wicked from the king's presence, and his throne will be established in righteousness.
6
Don't brag about yourself before the king, and don't stand in the place of the great;
7
for it is better for him to say to you, "Come up here!" than to demote you in plain view of a noble.
8
Don't take a matter to court hastily. Otherwise, what will you do afterwards if your opponent humiliates you?
9
Make your case with your opponent without revealing another's secret;
10
otherwise, the one who hears will disgrace you, and you'll never live it down.
11
A word spoken at the right time is like golden apples on a silver tray.
12
A wise correction to a receptive ear is like a gold ring or an ornament of gold.
13
To those who send him, a trustworthy messenger is like the coolness of snow on a harvest day; he refreshes the life of his masters.
14
The man who boasts about a gift that does not exist is like clouds and wind without rain.
15
A ruler can be persuaded through patience, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.
16
If you find honey, eat only what you need; otherwise, you'll get sick from it and vomit.
17
Seldom set foot in your neighbor's house; otherwise, he'll get sick of you and hate you.
18
A man giving false testimony against his neighbor is like a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow.
19
Trusting an unreliable person in a time of trouble is like a rotten tooth or a faltering foot.
20
Singing songs to a troubled heart is like taking off clothing on a cold day, or like [pouring] vinegar on soda.
21
If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat, and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
22
for you will heap coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you.
23
The north wind produces rain, and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
24
Better to live on the corner of a roof than in a house shared with a nagging wife.
25
Good news from a distant land is like cold water to a parched throat.
26
A righteous person who yields to the wicked is like a muddied spring or a polluted well.
27
It is not good to eat too much honey, or to seek glory after glory.
28
A man who does not control his temper is like a city whose wall is broken down.
