Proverbs 25 - Versions
Proverbs 25 Text (WEB)
  1. These also are proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.
  2. It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
  3. As the heavens for height, and the earth for depth, so the hearts of kings are unsearchable.
  4. Take away the dross from the silver, and material comes out for the refiner;
  5. Take away the wicked from the king's presence, and his throne will be established in righteousness.
  6. Don't exalt yourself in the presence of the king, or claim a place among great men;
  7. 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.
  8. Don't be hasty in bringing charges to court. What will you do in the end when your neighbor shames you?
  9. Debate your case with your neighbor, and don't betray the confidence of another;
  10. lest one who hears it put you to shame, and your bad reputation never depart.
  11. A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.
  12. As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover to an obedient ear.
  13. 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.
  14. As clouds and wind without rain, so is he who boasts of gifts deceptively.
  15. By patience a ruler is persuaded. A soft tongue breaks the bone.
  16. Have you found honey? Eat as much as is sufficient for you, lest you eat too much, and vomit it.
  17. Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor's house, lest he be weary of you, and hate you.
  18. A man who gives false testimony against his neighbor is like a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow.
  19. Confidence in someone unfaithful in time of trouble is like a bad tooth, or a lame foot.
  20. As one who takes away a garment in cold weather, or vinegar on soda, so is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.
  21. If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat. If he is thirsty, give him water to drink:
  22. for you will heap coals of fire on his head, and Yahweh will reward you.
  23. The north wind brings forth rain: so a backbiting tongue brings an angry face.
  24. It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than to share a house with a contentious woman.
  25. Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
  26. Like a muddied spring, and a polluted well, so is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
  27. It is not good to eat much honey; nor is it honorable to seek one's own honor.
  28. Like a city that is broken down and without walls is a man whose spirit is without restraint.

Proverbs 25 Text (Latin)
  1. Hæ quoque parabolæ Salomonis, quas transtulerunt viri Ezechiæ regis Juda.
  2. Gloria Dei est celare verbum, et gloria regum investigare sermonem.
  3. Cælum sursum, et terra deorsum, et cor regum inscrutabile.
  4. Aufer rubiginem de argento, et egredietur vas purissimum.
  5. Aufer impietatem de vultu regis, et firmabitur justitia thronus ejus.
  6. Ne gloriosus appareas coram rege, et in loco magnorum ne steteris.
  7. Melius est enim ut dicatur tibi : Ascende huc, quam ut humilieris coram principe.
  8. Quæ viderunt oculi tui ne proferas in jurgio cito, ne postea emendare non possis, cum dehonestaveris amicum tuum.
  9. Causam tuam tracta cum amico tuo, et secretum extraneo ne reveles :
  10. ne forte insultet tibi cum audierit, et exprobrare non cesset. Gratia et amicitia liberant : quas tibi serva, ne exprobrabilis fias.
  11. Mala aurea in lectis argenteis, qui loquitur verbum in tempore suo.
  12. Inauris aurea et margaritum fulgens qui arguit sapientem et aurem obedientem.
  13. Sicut frigus nivis in die messis, ita legatus fidelis ei qui misit eum : animam ipsius requiescere facit.
  14. Nubes, et ventus, et pluviæ non sequentes, vir gloriosus et promissa non complens.
  15. Patientia lenietur princeps, et lingua mollis confringet duritiam.
  16. Mel invenisti comede quod sufficit tibi, ne fore satiatus evomas illud.
  17. Subtrahe pedem tuum de domo proximi tui, nequando satiatus oderit te.
  18. Jaculum, et gladius, et sagitta acuta, homo qui loquitur contra proximum suum falsum testimonium.
  19. Dens putridus, et pes lassus, qui sperat super infideli in die angustiæ,
  20. et amittit pallium in die frigoris. Acetum in nitro, qui cantat carmina cordi pessimo. Sicut tinea vestimento, et vermis ligno, ita tristitia viri nocet cordi.
  21. Si esurierit inimicus tuus, ciba illum ; si sitierit, da ei aquam bibere :
  22. prunas enim congregabis super caput ejus, et Dominus reddet tibi.
  23. Ventus aquilo dissipat pluvias, et facies tristis linguam detrahentem.
  24. Melius est sedere in angulo domatis, quam cum muliere litigiosa et in domo communi.
  25. Aqua frigida animæ sitienti, et nuntius bonus de terra longinqua.
  26. Fons turbatus pede et vena corrupta, justus cadens coram impio.
  27. Sicut qui mel multum comedit non est ei bonum, sic qui scrutator est majestatis opprimetur a gloria.
  28. Sicut urbs patens et absque murorum ambitu, ita vir qui non potest in loquendo cohibere spiritum suum.
Proverbs 25 Text (KJV)
  1. These are also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.
  2. It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
  3. The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.
  4. Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.
  5. Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.
  6. Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:
  7. For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.
  8. Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame.
  9. Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another:
  10. Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away.
  11. A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
  12. As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
  13. As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters.
  14. Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.
  15. By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.
  16. Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it.
  17. Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.
  18. A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.
  19. Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
  20. As he that taketh away a garment in cold weather, and as vinegar upon nitre, so is he that singeth songs to an heavy heart.
  21. If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
  22. For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
  23. The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.
  24. It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.
  25. As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
  26. A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.
  27. It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.
  28. He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
