Proverbs 25:9-11 The Passion Translation (TPT)
9 Don’t reveal another person’s secret
just to prove a point in an argument,
or you could be accused of being a gossip
10 and gain a reputation for being one
who betrays the confidence of a friend.
11 Winsome words spoken at just the right time
are as appealing as apples gilded in gold
and surrounded with silver.
