Proverbs 25:10-12 American Standard Version (ASV)
10 Lest he that heareth it revile thee,
And thine infamy turn not away.
11 A word fitly spoken
Is like apples of gold in network of silver.
12 As an ear-ring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold,
So is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
Proverbs 25:10-12 New International Version (NIV)
10 or the one who hears it may shame you
and the charge against you will stand.
11 Like apples of gold in settings of silver
is a ruling rightly given.
12 Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold
is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.
