Ketuvim Mishle Shlomo

9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hates you; reprove a wise man, and he will love you.

9:9 Give to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.

15:12
A scorner loves not to be reproved; he will not go unto the wise.

15:31
The ear that hearkens to the reproof of life abides among the wise.

15:32
He that refuses correction despises his own soul; but he that hearkens to reproof gets understanding.

17:10
A rebuke enters deeper into a man of understanding than a hundred stripes into a fool.

18:4
The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters; a flowing brook, a fountain of wisdom.

19:20
Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

27:5
Better is open rebuke than love that is hidden.

27:6
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are importunate.

27:9
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart; so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.

27:17
Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

27:19
As in water face answers to face, so the heart of man to man.

29:5
A man that flatters his neighbour spreads a net for his steps.
