Proverbs 11:13; Proverbs 16:28; Proverbs 17:9; Proverbs 18:8; Proverbs 20:19; Proverbs 26:20; Proverbs 26:22

13  Whoever rgoes about slandering reveals secrets,

but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.


28  aA dishonest man spreads strife,

and ba whisperer cseparates close friends.


Whoever zcovers an offense seeks love,

but he who repeats a matter aseparates close friends.


fThe words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;

they go down into gthe inner parts of the body.


19  Whoever egoes about slandering reveals secrets;

therefore do not associate with fa simple babbler.1


20  For lack of wood the fire goes out,

and where there is no pwhisperer, qquarreling ceases.


22  sThe words of pa whisperer are like delicious morsels;

they go down into the inner parts of the body.
