Proverbs 25:19-21 Expanded Bible (EXB)

19 Trusting unfaithful people ·when you are in [L on a day of] trouble
is like eating with a broken tooth or walking with a crippled foot.

20 Singing songs to ·someone who is sad [L a troubled heart]
    is like taking away his coat on a cold day
or pouring vinegar on soda [C sodium bicarbonate; mixing the two would cause an adverse reaction; the Greek Old Testament reads “scab” or “wound” instead of “soda”].

21 If ·your enemy [L one you hate] is hungry, feed him.
    If he is thirsty, give him a drink.

Proverbs 25:19-21 New International Version (NIV)

19 Like a broken tooth or a lame foot
    is reliance on the unfaithful in a time of trouble.
20 Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day,
    or like vinegar poured on a wound,
    is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.

21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
    if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
