12:16 A fool’s annoyance is known at once,
but the prudent overlooks an insult.
14:17 A person who has a quick temper does foolish things,
and a person with crafty schemes is hated.
14:29 The one who is slow to anger has great understanding,
but the one who has a quick temper exalts folly.
15:1 A gentle response turns away anger,
but a harsh word stirs up wrath.
15:18 A quick-tempered person stirs up dissension,
but one who is slow to anger calms a quarrel.
19:11 A person’s wisdom makes him slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
19:19 A person with great anger bears the penalty,
but if you deliver him from it once, you will have to do it again.
21:14 A gift given in secret subdues anger,
and a bribe given secretly subdues strong wrath.
22:24 Do not make friends with an angry person,
and do not associate with a wrathful person,
22:25 lest you learn his ways
and entangle yourself in a snare.
29:8 Scornful people inflame a city,
but those who are wise turn away wrath.
29:22 An angry person stirs up dissension,
and a wrathful person is abounding in transgression.
30:33 For as the churning of milk produces butter
and as punching the nose produces blood,
so stirring up anger produces strife.
