Proverbs 14:29; Proverbs 16:32; Proverbs 19:11; Proverbs 23:1–3; Proverbs 25:28; Proverbs 29:1

29  Whoever is sslow to anger has great understanding,

but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.


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.


23  When you sit down to eat with a ruler,

observe carefully what1 is before you,

and put a knife to your throat

if you are given to appetite.

cDo not desire his delicacies,

for they are deceptive food.


28  A man swithout self-control

is like ta city broken into and left without walls.


29  zHe who is often reproved, yet stiffens his neck,

will suddenly be abroken bbeyond healing.
