They hate him who reproves at the gate,
and they abhor him who speaks with integrity. Bible see other translations

“him who reproves at the gate. The city elders sat at the gate of the city, and if one was honest and godly, he would try to stand for what was right and reprove the others, and was hated for it. [For more on the elders at the gate, see commentary on Ruth 4:11].
