The Ammonite commanders said to Hanun, their master, “Do you really think these men are coming here to honor your father? No! David has sent them to spy out the city so they can come in and conquer it!” So Hanun seized David’s ambassadors and shaved off half of each man’s beard, cut off their robes at the buttocks, and sent them back to David in shame.
2 Samuel 10:3-4 NLT
The bad advice from evil counselors can make us lose a good friendship; prompt us to make decisions that will regret in the future, and may even lead us to destruction.
