Proverbs 13:17-19 International Standard Version (ISV)

17 An evil messenger stumbles into trouble,
    but a faithful envoy brings healing.

18 Poverty and shame are for those who ignore correction,
    but whoever listens to instruction gains honor.

19 Fulfilled longing is sweet to the soul,
    but avoiding evil is detestable to the fool.
