What you have seen with your eyes do not bring hastily to court, for what will you do in the end if your neighbor puts you to shame?
Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a ruling rightly given.
Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.
Like snow-cooled drink at harvest time is a trustworthy messenger to the one who sends him; he refreshes the spirit of his master.
Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.
If you find honey, eat just enough - too much of it, and you will vomit.
Seldom set foot in your neighbor's house - too much of you, and they will hate you.
Like a broken tooth or a lame foot is reliance on the unfaithful in a time of trouble.
Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day, or like vinegar poured on a wound, is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.
If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.
Like a north wind that brings unexpected rain is a sly tongue - which provokes a horrified look.
Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.
Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.
Like a muddied spring or a polluted well are the righteous who give way to the wicked.
