"Therefore I have come out to meet you, To seek your presence earnestly, and I have found you.
He who conceals hatred has lying lips, And he who spreads slander is a fool.
An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips, But the righteous will escape from trouble.
Drive out the scoffer, and contention will go out, Even strife and dishonor will cease.
Take away the dross from the silver, And there comes out a vessel for the smith ;
Do not go out hastily to argue your case; Otherwise, what will you do in the end, When your neighbor humiliates you?
A fool always loses his temper, But a wise man holds it back.
The locusts have no king, Yet all of them go out in ranks ;
For the churning of milk produces butter, And pressing the nose brings forth blood ; So the churning of anger produces strife.
