For jealousy enrages a man, And he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, But the slow to anger calms a dispute.
The fury of a king is like messengers of death, But a wise man will appease it.
A man of great anger will bear the penalty, For if you rescue him, you will only have to do it again.
A gift in secret subdues anger, And a bribe in the bosom, strong wrath.
Do not associate with a man given to anger; Or go with a hot-tempered man,
Wrath is fierce and anger is a flood, But who can stand before jealousy?
An angry man stirs up strife, And a hot-tempered man abounds in transgression.
