Proverbs 25:19-21 New Living Translation (NLT)

19 Putting confidence in an unreliable person in times of trouble
    is like chewing with a broken tooth or walking on a lame foot.

20 Singing cheerful songs to a person with a heavy heart
    is like taking someone’s coat in cold weather
    or pouring vinegar in a wound.[a]

21 If your enemies are hungry, give them food to eat.
    If they are thirsty, give them water to drink.

Footnotes:

  1. 25:20 As in Greek version; Hebrew reads pouring vinegar on soda.
