Proverbs 15:1; Proverbs 15:23; Proverbs 16:1; Proverbs 16:4 (King James Version)
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!
The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.
The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
