A north wind bringeth forth rain, And a secret tongue -- indignant faces.
Proverbs 25:23 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The north wind driveth away rain - The margin has, "The north wind bringeth forth rain." It is said that the "north wind brings forth rain at Jerusalem, because it brings with it the vapours arising from the sea that lies north of it." The marginal is the true reading; and is supported by the Chaldee, Syriac, and Septuagint; but the Arabic reads south wind.
A backbiting tongue - A hidden tongue.
