16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
9 Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
14 Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out.
19 Whoever loves a quarrel loves sin; whoever builds a high gate invites destruction.
1 An unfriendly person pursues selfish ends and against all sound judgment starts quarrels.
19 A brother wronged is more unyielding than a fortified city; disputes are like the barred gates of a citadel.
