Proverbs 17 (KJV)

4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

5 Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth (address someone in such a way as to express disapproval or disappointment.)  his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities ( an event causing great and often sudden damage or distress; a disaster.) shall not be unpunished.

9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

Am one who forgives, but no matter the relationship, it downsizes after the same offense occurs again. ~ Karmen

11 An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.

12 Let a bear robbed of her whelps (cubs) meet a man, rather than a fool in his folly.

13 Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.

15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination (curse) to the Lord.

22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

23 A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.

27 He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
