Proverbs 25:9-11 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Don’t reveal another person’s secret
just to prove a point in an argument,
or you could be accused of being a gossip
10 and gain a reputation for being one
who betrays the confidence of a friend.
11 Winsome words spoken at just the right time[a]
are as appealing as apples gilded in gold
and surrounded with silver.[b]


  1. Proverbs 25:11 The Aramaic reads “The one who speaks the word is an apple of gold in a setting of silver.” The Septuagint is “A wise word is like a golden apple in a pendant of rubies.”
  2. Proverbs 25:11 Each one of God’s promises are like apples gilded in gold. When we are full of his Spirit we can speak and prophesy words of encouragement that are spoken at the right time for the blessing of others.
