Proverbs 25:10-12 English Standard Version (ESV)
10 lest he who hears you bring shame upon you,
and your ill repute have no end.
11 A word fitly spoken
is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.
12 Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold
is a wise reprover to a listening ear.

is a ruling rightly given.

is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.
