If you argue your case with a neighbor, do not betray another man's confidence, (Proverbs 25:9)

or he who hears it may shame you and you will never lose your bad reputation. (Proverbs 25:10)

Like clouds and wind without rain is a man who boasts of gifts he does not give. (Proverbs 25:14)

Like a club or a sword or a sharp arrow is the man who gives false testimony against his neighbor. (Proverbs 25:18)

As a north wind brings rain, so a sly tongue brings angry looks. (Proverbs 25:23)
