Proverbs 17:9-11 International Standard Version (ISV)
9 Anyone who overlooks[a] an offense promotes love,
10 A rebuke is more effective with a man of understanding
Proverbs 17:9-11 New International Version (NIV)
9 Whoever would foster love covers over an offense,
10 A rebuke impresses a discerning person
11 Evildoers foster rebellion against God;
Proverbs 17:9-11 King James Version (KJV)
9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.
10 A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
11 An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
