word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover to an obedient ear.
Proverbs 25 [5.] Take away the wicked from the king’s presence,
and his throne will be established in righteousness.
Don’t exalt yourself in the presence of the king,
or claim a place among great men;
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.
Don’t be hasty in bringing charges to court.
What will you do in the end when your neighbor shames you?
Debate your case with your neighbor,
and don’t betray the confidence of another;
Proverbs 25 [10.] lest one who hears it put you to shame,
and your bad reputation never depart.
A word fitly spoken
is like apples of gold in settings of silver.
As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold,
so is a wise reprover to an obedient ear.
As the cold of snow in the time of harvest,
so is a faithful messenger to those who send him;
for he refreshes the soul of his masters.
As clouds and wind without rain,
so is he who boasts of gifts deceptively.
