    In Proverbs 16:28, "perverse" can be defined as someone who is a "troublemaker" (NLT), a dishonest man (ESV), or devious. Essentially, this is a person who is not living in God's Will. As the verse proclaims, in the New Living Translation, "A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends."

    Those seeds of strife are planted not only for them, but also for those effected by their wrongdoing; GotQuestions.org has a great article about how our personal sins effect others at http://www.gotquestions.org/private-sin.html.

    God Bless,
    Brandon
