BRAGADAYJAH 1615 Proverbs 25: Verses 15-28 A Proverb of Solomon. By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone. Hath thou found honey? Eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomiteth. Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbor's house; lest he be weary of thee and so hate thee. A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and sword, and a sharp arrow. Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble, is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint. As he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitrate, so is he that singeth songs to an heavy heart. If thine enemy be hungry give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty give him water to drink. For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head; and the Lord shall reward thee. As the North wind driveth away rain; so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue. It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman, and in a wide house. As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country. A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring. It is not good to eat much honey; so, for men to search for their own glory is not glory. He that hath no rule over his own spirit, is like a city that is broken down and without walls.
