Proverbs 25:10-12 The Voice (VOICE)

10 For if you do, someone who hears you could disgrace you,
    and a bad reputation will cling to you ever afterward.

11 A well-spoken word at just the right moment
    is like golden apples in settings of silver.
12 To an attentive ear, constructive criticism from a truly wise person
    is like an earring or jewelry made of fine gold.

Proverbs 25:10-12 New International Version (NIV)

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

11 Like apples[a] of gold in settings of silver
    is a ruling rightly given.
12 Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold
    is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.
