Proverbs 17:9-11 Living Bible (TLB)

Love forgets mistakes; nagging about them parts the best of friends.

10 A rebuke to a man of common sense is more effective than a hundred lashes on the back of a rebel.

11 The wicked live for rebellion; they shall be severely punished.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. Proverbs 17:11 they shall be severely punished, literally, “a stern [ruthless] messenger will be sent against him.”
