Proverbs 5:18; Proverbs 31:12; Proverbs 27:15–16; Proverbs 17:14

18  Let your ofountain be blessed,

and srejoice in tthe wife of your youth,

12  She does him good, and not harm,

all the days of her life.

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.

14  The beginning of strife is like letting out water,

so gquit before the quarrel breaks out.
