16 zThe vexation of a fool is known at once,
but the prudent ignores an insult.
16 aOne who is wise is cautious1 and bturns away from evil,
but a fool is reckless and careless.
17 A man of cquick temper acts foolishly,
and a man of evil devices is hated.
29 Whoever is sslow to anger has great understanding,
but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
18 eA hot-tempered man fstirs up strife,
but he who is gslow to anger quiets contention.
32 jWhoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
11 pGood sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
19 A man of great wrath will pay the penalty,
for if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again.
24 Make no friendship with a man given to anger,
nor go with a wrathful man,
25 lest you learn his ways
and entangle yourself in a snare.
8 oScoffers set a city aflame,
but the wise turn away wrath.
22 dA man of wrath stirs up strife,
and one given to anger causes much transgression.
33 For pressing milk produces curds,
pressing the nose produces blood,
and pressing anger produces strife.
