15By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone. 16Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it. 17Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and [so] hate thee.18A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour [is] a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow. 19Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble [is like] a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
