Proverbs 25:9–10; Proverbs 25:14; Proverbs 25:18; Proverbs 25:23

xArgue your case with your neighbor himself,

and do not reveal another’s secret,

10  lest he who hears you bring shame upon you,

and your ill repute have no end.

14  Like cclouds and wind without rain

is a man who dboasts of a gift he does not give.

18  A man who hbears false witness against his neighbor

is like a war club, or ia sword, or a sharp arrow.

23  The north wind brings forth rain,

and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
