Bible: Proverbs 9:7-9

9:7 Whoever corrects 1  a mocker is asking for 2  insult; 3 

whoever reproves a wicked person receives 4  abuse.

9:8 Do not reprove 5  a mocker or 6  he will hate you;

reprove a wise person and he will love you.

9:9 Give instruction 7  to a wise person, 8  and he will become wiser still;

teach 9  a righteous person and he will add to his 10  learning.
