Proverbs 25:21-28, Proverbs 26:1-2 NIV

Proverbs 25:21-28

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.

It is not good to eat too much honey,

nor is it honorable to search out matters that are too deep.

Like a city whose walls are broken through

is a person who lacks self-control.

Proverbs 26:1-2

Like snow in summer or rain in harvest,

honor is not fitting for a fool.

Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow,

an undeserved curse does not come to rest.
