Proverbs 20:17-19 Common English Bible (CEB)

17 Stolen bread is sweet,
    but afterward the mouth is full of gravel.
18 Plans are firmed up by advice;
    wage wars with good guidance.
19 Gossips reveal secrets;
    don’t associate with those who talk too much.

Proverbs 20:17-19 New International Version (NIV)

17 Food gained by fraud tastes sweet,
    but one ends up with a mouth full of gravel.

18 Plans are established by seeking advice;
    so if you wage war, obtain guidance.

19 A gossip betrays a confidence;
    so avoid anyone who talks too much.
