Your neighbor (Prov 25:17-25:19)

“Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor’s house.

Otherwise the neighbor will become weary of you.

He will hate you.

One who bears false witness against a neighbor is

Like a war club,

Like a sword,

Like a sharp arrow.

Trust in a faithless person

In time of trouble is

Like a bad tooth

Or lame foot.”

Be careful with your neighbors. Do not go there too often. Otherwise your neighbor will grow weary of you. He will end up hating you. Do not bear false witness against a neighbor. That is dangerous like a war club, a sword, or a sharp arrow. Do not trust a faithless person when you are in trouble. They will be like a bad tooth or a lame foot, an annoyance to you.
