Proverbs 25

1  These are also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.

2  It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

3  The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.

4  Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.

5  Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.

6  Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:

7  For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.

8  Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to shame.

9  Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another:

10  Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away.
