Proverbs 26:20-22 WBT

20 Where no wood is, [there] the fire goeth out: so where [there is] no tale-bearer, 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 tale-bearer [are] as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
