Proverbs 25:15

By

patience a ruler is persuaded. A soft tongue breaks the bone.
Proverbs 25:15

Context

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.

Proverbs 25 [15.] By patience a ruler is persuaded.
A soft tongue breaks the bone.

Have you found honey?
Eat as much as is sufficient for you,
lest you eat too much, and vomit it.
Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor’s house,
lest he be weary of you, and hate you.
A man who gives false testimony against his neighbor
is like a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow.
Confidence in someone unfaithful in time of trouble
is like a bad tooth, or a lame foot.
