Proverbs 13:17-19 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
17 A bad messenger brings trouble,
but a faithful envoy, healing.
18 Poverty and disgrace are for the one who ignores instruction,
but one who heeds reproof is honoured.
19 A desire realized is sweet to the soul,
but to turn away from evil is an abomination to fools.
