Proverbs 13:17-19 Darby Translation (DARBY)

17 A wicked messenger falleth into evil; but a faithful ambassador is health.

18 Poverty and shame shall be [to] him that refuseth instruction; but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.

19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul; but it is abomination to the foolish to depart from evil.

Proverbs 13:17-19 New International Version (NIV)

17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble,
    but a trustworthy envoy brings healing.

18 Whoever disregards discipline comes to poverty and shame,
    but whoever heeds correction is honored.

19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul,
    but fools detest turning from evil.
