Proverbs 17:8-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
8 A bribe seems a charm to its user;
at every turn it brings success.
9 Whoever overlooks an offense fosters friendship,
but whoever gossips about it separates friends.
10 A single reprimand does more for a discerning person
than a hundred lashes for a fool.
