Proverbs 10:16-18 The Passion Translation (TPT)

16 The lovers of God earn their wages for a life of righteousness,
but the wages of the wicked are squandered on a life of sin.[a]
17 If you readily receive correction,
you are walking on the path to life.
But if you reject rebuke,
you’re guaranteed to go astray.[b]
18 The one who hides his hatred while pretending to be your friend
is nothing but a liar.
But the one who slanders you behind your back
proves that he’s a fool, never to be trusted.


  1. Proverbs 10:16 Or “their harvest of wickedness.”
  2. Proverbs 10:17 The Aramaic is even more blunt: “Reject rebuke and you’re a moron!”
