Proverbs 20:17-19 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

17 Bread gained by deceit is sweet,
    but afterward the mouth will be full of gravel.
18 Plans are established by taking advice;
    wage war by following wise guidance.
19 A gossip reveals secrets;
    therefore do not associate with a babbler.
