Proverbs 25:11-13 Modern English Version (MEV)

11 A word fitly spoken
    is like apples of gold in settings of silver.
12 As an earring of gold and an ornament of fine gold,
    so is a wise reprover to an obedient ear.

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