Proverbs 26:17-26


Today’s Scripture:

Like yanking the ears of a dog,
    so is one who passes by and gets involved in another person’s fight.
Like a crazy person shooting deadly flaming arrows
   are those who deceive their neighbor and say, “Hey, I was only joking!”
Without wood a fire goes out;
    without gossips, conflict calms down.
Like adding charcoal to embers or wood to fire,
    quarrelsome people kindle strife.
The words of gossips are like choice snacks;
    they go down to the inmost parts.
Smooth lips and an evil heart
    are like silver coating on clay.
Hateful people mislead with their lips,
    keeping their deception within.
Though they speak graciously, don’t believe them,
    for seven horrible things are in their heart.
They may cover their hatred with trickery,
    but their evil will be revealed in public.
