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.
