29 Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding,
but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
18 A hot-tempered man stirs up strife,
but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
32 Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
14 The beginning of strife is like letting out water,
so quit before the quarrel breaks out.
27 Whoever restrains his words has knowledge,
and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.
11 Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
19 A man of great wrath will pay the penalty,
for if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again.
21 As charcoal to hot embers and wood to fire,
so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife.
22 A man of wrath stirs up strife,
and one given to anger causes much transgression.
