Pr 25:16–17

25:16, 17 What were probably separate sayings are here joined to reinforce the message they have in common: Know when to stop; honey is good for you, but too much makes you sick; neighborly friendship is good, but excessive familiarity can abuse another’s privacy. Relationships need to be wisely defined.
