8 lDo not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you;
mreprove a wise man, and he will love you.
treprove a man of understanding, and he will gain knowledge.
12 Like za gold ring or an ornament of gold
is a wise reprover to aa listening ear.
6 Faithful are dthe wounds of a friend;
profuse are the kisses of an enemy.
5 It is lbetter for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise
than to hear the song of fools.
