11A fool travaileth with a word, as a woman in labour of a child. 12As an arrow that sticketh in a man's thigh, so is a word within a fool's belly. 13Admonish a friend, it may be he hath not done it: and if he have done it, that he do it no more. 14Admonish thy friend, it may be he hath not said it: and if he have, that he speak it not again.15Admonish a friend: for many times it is a slander, and believe not every tale. 16There is one that slippeth in his speech, but not from his heart; and who is he that hath not offended with his tongue? 17Admonish thy neighbour before thou threaten him; and not being angry, give place to the law of the most High.
"Admonish thy friend, it may be he hath not said it: and if he have, that he speak it not again." Ecclesiasticus 19:14 KJVSimilar VersesSave
