Proverbs 14:29–30; Proverbs 15:1; Proverbs 15:18; Proverbs 16:32; Proverbs 19:11; Proverbs 23:28–29; Proverbs 25:21–22

29  Whoever is sslow to anger has great understanding,

but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.

30  A tranquil1 heart gives tlife to the flesh,

but uenvy2 makes vthe bones rot.


15  dA soft answer turns away wrath,

but ea harsh word stirs up anger.


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.


28  kShe lies in wait like a robber

and increases the traitors among mankind.

29  lWho has woe? Who has sorrow?

Who has strife? Who has complaining?

Who has mwounds without cause?

Who has nredness of eyes?


21  kIf your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,

and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,

22  for you will heap lburning coals on his head,

and the Lord will reward you.
