Proverbs 17:9-11 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Whoever covers up an offense seeks love.[a]
Whoever repeats a matter separates close friends.

10 A rebuke makes a greater impression on a discerning person
than a hundred lashes on a fool.

11 An evil man seeks only rebellion,
and so 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.
