Now viewing scripture range from the book of Proverbs chapter 17:9
through chapter 17:12...
9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth [very] friends.
10 A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.
11 An evil [man] seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
12 Let a bear robbed of her whelps meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.
