Much like a gold ring in the snout of a pig, so is a beautiful woman who lacks good judgement. (v22 The Voice)
WOW! That really drives home what the write of Proverbs said about a woman who lacks good judgement.
The chapter has so many jewels (pun intended) in it. I love verse 25: A giving person will receive much in return, and someone who gives water will also receive the water he needs. (The Voice -italicized represents words added by the translators not part of the original text) I have a friend, Brian, who exemplifies this passage. He is a very giving person including his time. And looking at him and his family they don't have needs. He has a good job but unlike the person in verse 26 he doesn't hoard what he has.
I also like verse 17: Kindness is its own reward, but cruelty is a self-inflicted wound.
This is so true! When I've been cruel to someone it ends up eating at me.
What other things jump out at you? So many good things!
