Proverbs 26:20-22 TMBA

20 Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out; so, where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire, so is a contentious man to kindle strife.
22 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
