Proverbs 17:9-11 Modern English Version (MEV)

He who covers a transgression seeks love,
    but he who repeats a matter separates friends.

10 A reproof enters deeper into a wise man
    than a hundred stripes into a fool.

11 An evil man seeks only rebellion;
    therefore a cruel messenger will be sent against him.

Proverbs 17:9-11 New International Version (NIV)

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

10 A rebuke impresses a discerning person
    more than a hundred lashes a fool.

11 Evildoers foster rebellion against God;
    the messenger of death will be sent against them.
