A gossip betrays a confidence,
but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.(NIV)
A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.(KJV)
He who goes about as a talebearer reveals secrets,
But he who is trustworthy conceals a matter.(NASB)
One of the most terrible forms of destruction by the mouth is gossip (v. 13). The divulging of a secret by a "talebearer" (lit. "one who goes about in slander") is a betrayal of trust (Prov. 16:28; 17:9; 26:20-22).
