Proverbs 19:13; Proverbs 21:9; Proverbs 21:19; Proverbs 25:24; Proverbs 27:15–16

13  tA foolish son is ruin to his father,

and ua wife’s quarreling is va continual dripping of rain.


It is nbetter to live in a corner of the housetop

than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.


19  It is wbetter to live in a desert land

than with a quarrelsome and fretful woman.


24  mIt is better to live in a corner of the housetop

than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.


15  qA continual dripping on a rainy day

and a quarrelsome wife are alike;

16  to restrain her is to restrain the wind

or to grasp1 oil in one’s right hand.
