16 There are dsix things that the Lord hates,
dseven that are an abomination to him:
and ghands that shed innocent blood,
18 ha heart that devises wicked plans,
ifeet that make haste to run to evil,
and one who asows discord among brothers.
9 Whoever zcovers an offense seeks love,
but he who repeats a matter aseparates close friends.
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.
18 Whoever yisolates himself seeks his own desire;
he breaks out against all sound judgment.
19 A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city,
and quarreling is like the bars of a castle.
11 A fool gives full vent to his spirit,
but a wise man quietly holds it back.
22 dA man of wrath stirs up strife,
and one given to anger causes much transgression.
32 If you have been foolish, exalting yourself,
or if you have been devising evil,
eput your hand on your mouth.
33 For pressing milk produces curds,
pressing the nose produces blood,
and pressing anger produces strife.
