Proverbs Scripture Reading - Proverbs 25:23-28

Proverbs 25:23-28 Holman Christian Standard Bible

The north wind produces rain,

and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.

Better to live on the corner of a roof

than to share a house with a nagging wife.

Good news from a distant land

is like cold water to a parched throat.

A righteous person who yields to the wicked

is like a muddied spring or a polluted well.

It is not good to eat too much honey

or to seek glory after glory.

A man who does not control his temper

is like a city whose wall is broken down.
