Proverbs 17:9-11 World English Bible (WEB)

He who covers an offense promotes love;
    but he who repeats a matter separates best friends.
10 A rebuke enters deeper into one who has understanding
    than a hundred lashes into a fool.
11 An evil man seeks only rebellion;
    therefore a cruel messenger shall 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.
