Proverbs 17:8-10 New Life Version (NLV)
8 Being paid in secret for wrong-doing is like a stone of much worth to the one who has it. Wherever he turns, he does well.
9 He who covers a sin looks for love. He who tells of trouble separates good friends.
10 A man of understanding learns more from being told the right thing to do than a fool learns from being beaten a hundred times.
