Proverbs 25 ©
In this and the four following chapters are contained various maxims and observations of Solomon, collected by the men of Hezekiah, about kings, and other subjects of both private and public concern.
2Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and istand not in the place of great men :
Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and mthine infamy turn not away.
For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
