Proverbs 17:9-11 Modern English Version (MEV)
9 He who covers a transgression seeks love,
but he who repeats a matter separates friends.
10 A reproof enters deeper into a wise man
than a hundred stripes into a fool.
11 An evil man seeks only rebellion;
therefore a cruel messenger will be sent against him.

Proverbs 17:9-11 New International Version (NIV)
9 Whoever would foster love covers over an offense,
but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
10 A rebuke impresses a discerning person
more than a hundred lashes a fool.

the messenger of death will be sent against them.
