Proverbs 17:9-11 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Love overlooks the mistakes of others,
but dwelling on the failures of others devastates friendships.
10 One word of correction breaks open a teachable heart,
but a fool can be corrected a hundred times
and still not know what hit him.
11 Rebellion thrives in an evil man,
so a messenger of vengeance[a] will be sent to punish him.[b]
