Proverbs 20:17-19 World English Bible (WEB)

17 Fraudulent food is sweet to a man,
    but afterwards his mouth is filled with gravel.
18 Plans are established by advice;
    by wise guidance you wage war!
19 He who goes about as a tale-bearer reveals secrets;
    therefore don’t keep company with him who opens wide his lips.

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.
