Proverbs 17:8-18 (Revised Standard Version)

View In My Bible
8 A bribe is like a magic stone in the eyes of him who gives it; wherever he turns he prospers. 9 He who forgives an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter alienates a friend. 10 A rebuke goes deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred blows into a fool. 11 An evil man seeks only rebellion, and a cruel messenger will be sent against him. 12 Let a man meet a she-bear robbed of her cubs, rather than a fool in his folly. 13 If a man returns evil for good, evil will not depart from his house. 14 The beginning of strife is like letting out water; so quit before the quarrel breaks out. 15 He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the LORD. 16 Why should a fool have a price in his hand to buy wisdom, when he has no mind? 17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. 18 A man without sense gives a pledge, and becomes surety in the presence of his neighbor.
