A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
Read Proverbs 19:11 Using Other Translations
The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
Sensible people control their temper; they earn respect by overlooking wrongs.
