Proverbs 25:11-13 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

11 The right ruling at the right time
    is like golden apples in silver jewelry.

12 A wise judge’s warning to a listening ear
    is like a gold earring or jewelry made of fine gold.

13 A messenger trusted by the one who sends him
    is like a drink cooled by snow at harvest time.
    He renews the spirit of his master.
