30 vDo not contend with a man for no reason,
when he has done you no harm.
12 Hatred stirs up strife,
but wlove covers all offenses.
10 fBy insolence comes nothing but strife,
but with those who take advice is wisdom.
but he who is gslow to anger quiets contention.
28 aA dishonest man spreads strife,
14 The beginning of strife is like letting out water,
so gquit before the quarrel breaks out.
19 Whoever loves transgression loves strife;
he who lmakes his door high seeks destruction.
19 A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city,
and quarreling is like the bars of a castle.
3 It is an honor for a man to dkeep aloof from strife,
but every fool will be quarreling.
19 It is wbetter to live in a desert land
than with a quarrelsome and fretful woman.
and equarreling and abuse will cease.
for2 what will you do in the end,
when your neighbor puts you to shame?
4 bAnswer not a fool according to his folly,
lest you be like him yourself.
5 cAnswer a fool according to his folly,
lest he be dwise in his own eyes.
17 Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own
is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.
20 For lack of wood the fire goes out,
21 As charcoal to hot embers and wood to fire,
so is ra quarrelsome man for kindling strife.
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.
