but the glory of kings is to search things out.
so the mind of kings is unsearchable.
and the smith has material for a vessel;
and his throne will be established in righteousness.
or stand in the place of the great;
than to be put lower in the presence of the prince.
What your eyes have seen
fors what will you do in the end,
when your neighbor puts you to shame?
and do not disclose another’s secret;
and your ill repute have no end.
is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.
is a wise reprover to a listening ear.
is a faithful messenger to those who send him,
he refreshes the spirit of his masters.
is a man who boasts of a gift he does not give.
and a soft tongue will break a bone.
lest you be sated with it and vomit it.
lest he become weary of you and hate you.
is like a war club, or a sword, or a sharp arrow.
is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips.
is like one who takes off a garment on a cold day,
and like vinegar on a wound.t
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;
and the Lord will reward you.
and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
so is good news from a far country.
is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
so be sparing of complimentary words.*
is like a city broken into and left without walls.
