Daily Reading Proverbs 25

Listen & Read along 

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.

About liv4Christ4ever

Seeking to promote true life through Jesus Christ by making the Gospel relevant to our lives today. Presenting the word of God as the final authority on how we as believers, hypocrites and those yet to believe should live in order to please our Creator. One thing is sure, the creature (all creation) was created for a purpose. We will do well by acknowledging our Creator and using His gift of free will to accomplish His purposes. According to scripture “Every knee will bow (Submission) and every tongue will confess (Confession)” to Jesus Christ the Lord. We just choose to submit and confess Christ’s Lordship daily that we might live with Him now and forever.
