Daily Bible Reading: Proverbs 25-28
Proverbs 25:11-13 (ESV) A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver. Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold is a wise reprover to a listening ear. Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest is a faithful messenger to those who send him; he refreshes the soul of his masters.
Proverbs 26:4-5 (ESV) Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself. Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he is wise in his own eyes.
26:4-5. These two sayings belong together; they complement each other. Their point is that one should not be drawn down to a fool’s level (v. 4) but at times he must use the fool’s language to refute the fool so he does not become conceited (v. 5; cf. vv. 12, 16). Wisdom is needed to determine when to apply verse 4 and when to apply verse 5. The Jewish Talmud suggests that verse 4 pertains to foolish comments that can be ignored and that verse 5 refers to erroneous ideas that must be corrected. You in verse 4 is emphatic and may be translated as “you, even you.”
Proverbs 27:1-2 (ESV) Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.
