“A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.”
King James Version (KJV)
17:8 A precious stone - Pleasant and acceptable; and withal dazzles his eyes. Whithersoever - To whomsoever it is presented. But this, as also many of her proverbs, are to be understood of most men, not of all.
