Proverbs 25:26-28 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain
is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
27 It is not good to eat much honey,
so be sparing of complimentary words.
28 A man without self-control
is like a city broken into and left without walls.
