Proverbs 25:2 - 25:7

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
As the heavens for height and the earth for depth,

Take away the dross from the silver,
And there comes out a vessel for the smith;
Take away the wicked before the king,
And his throne will be established in righteousness.
Do not promote your majesty in the presence of the king,
And in the place of great men do not stand;
For it is better that it be said to you, “Come up here,”
Than for you to be placed lower in the presence of a noble,
Whom your eyes have seen.

Proverbs 27:18

He who guards the fig tree will eat its fruit,
And he who keeps watch for his master will be honored.
