Proverbs 17:9-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

He that covereth a transgression, seeketh love: but he that repeateth a matter, separateth the [a]prince.

10 A reproof entereth more into him that hath understanding, than an hundred stripes into a fool.

11 A seditious person seeketh only evil, and a cruel [b]messenger shall be sent against him.


  1. Proverbs 17:9 He that admonisheth the prince of his fault, maketh him his enemy.
  2. Proverbs 17:11 By the messenger is meant such means as God useth to punish the rebels.
