Proverbs 14:17; Proverbs 14:29; Proverbs 15:18; Proverbs 22:24–25; Proverbs 25:8
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.
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 wdo not hastily bring into court,1
for2 what will you do in the end,
when your neighbor puts you to shame?
