Proverbs 25:19-21 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)

19 Like a bad tooth or a lame foot
    is trust in a faithless person in time of trouble.
20 Like vinegar on a wound[a]
    is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.
Like a moth in clothing or a worm in wood,
    sorrow gnaws at the human heart.[b]
21 If your enemies are hungry, give them bread to eat;
    and if they are thirsty, give them water to drink;
