Proverbs 17:9-11 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
9 Whoever conceals an offense promotes love,
but whoever gossips about it separates friends.
10 A rebuke cuts into a perceptive person
more than a hundred lashes into a fool.
11 An evil person desires only rebellion;
a cruel messenger will be sent against him.

9 Whoever would foster love covers over an offense,
but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.

more than a hundred lashes a fool.

the messenger of death will be sent against them.
