Proverbs 25:11-13 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)

11 ¶ A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold inscribed with silver.

12 As an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold, so is he who reproves a wise man who has a docile ear.

13 ¶ As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to those that send him, for he refreshes the soul of his master.
