Proverbs 10:16-18 The Passion Translation (TPT)
16 The lovers of God earn their wages for a life of righteousness,
but the wages of the wicked are squandered on a life of sin.
17 If you readily receive correction,
you are walking on the path to life.
But if you reject rebuke,
you’re guaranteed to go astray.
18 The one who hides his hatred while pretending to be your friend
is nothing but a liar.
But the one who slanders you behind your back
proves that he’s a fool, never to be trusted.
