Proverbs 25:10-12 New Life Version (NLV)

10 Or he who hears you may put you to shame, and bad things will be said about you forever.

11 A word spoken at the right time is like fruit of gold set in silver.

12 A wise man speaking strong words to a listening ear is like a piece of gold for the ear and a beautiful object of fine gold.

10 or the one who hears it may shame you
    and the charge against you will stand.
