The Proverbs - Chapter 25
The Proverbs Chapters
1 Here are some more of Solomon's proverbs, transcribed at the court of Hezekiah king of Judah:
5 from the king's presence remove the wicked and on uprightness his throne is founded.
13 The coolness of snow in harvest time, such is a trustworthy messenger to those who send him: he revives the soul of his master.
16 Eat to your satisfaction what honey you may find, but not to excess or you will bring it up again.
18 A mace, a sword, a piercing arrow, such is anyone who bears false witness against a companion.
19 Decaying tooth, lame foot, such is the fickle when trusted in time of trouble:
25 Cold water to a thirsty throat; such is good news from a distant land.
26 A churned -- up spring, a fountain fouled; such is the upright person trembling before the wicked.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
