13 A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.
13 A talebearer A talebearer: Heb. He that walketh, being a talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
13 Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets, but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.
13 A gadabout gossip can't be trusted with a secret, but someone of integrity won't violate a confidence.
13 A talebearer reveals secrets, But he who is of a faithful spirit conceals a matter.
13 A gossip goes around telling secrets, but those who are trustworthy can keep a confidence.
(Read Proverbs 11:13)
A faithful man will not disclose what he is trusted with, unless the honour of God and the real good of society require it.
