Proverbs 25:14-17 Holman Christian Standard Bible
The man who boasts about a gift that does not exist
is like clouds and wind without rain.
A ruler can be persuaded through patience,
and a gentle tongue can break a bone.
If you find honey, eat only what you need;
otherwise, you’ll get sick from it and vomit.
Seldom set foot in your neighbor’s house;
otherwise, he’ll get sick of you and hate you.
