                                                     Selected Proverbs



29:22      An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.

14:17      A quick-tempered man does foolish things, and a crafty man is hated.

29:08      Mockers stir up a city, but wise men turn away anger.

30:33 For as churning the milk produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife.

21:07 The violence of the wicked will drag them away, for they refuse to do what is right.



15:18 A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel.

15:01 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

25:15 Through patience a ruler can be persuaded, and a gentle tongue can break a bone.

21:14 A gift given in secret soothes anger, and a bride concealed in the cloak pacifies great wrath.

17:01 Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife.



29:11 A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.

17:27 A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.

14:29 A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly.

14:16 A wise man fears the Lord and shuns evil, but a fool is hotheaded and reckless.

25:28 Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.



22:24-25 Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered. or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared.

16:29 A violent man entices his neighbor and leads him down a path that is not good.

19:19 A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty; if you rescue him, you will have to do it again.
