Proverbs 17:9-11 New Life Version (NLV)
9 He who covers a sin looks for love. He who tells of trouble separates good friends.
10 A man of understanding learns more from being told the right thing to do than a fool learns from being beaten a hundred times.
11 A man who will not obey looks only for what is bad. So one who has no loving-pity will be sent against him.
