If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.
Do not be in a hurry to leave him. Do not join in an evil matter, for he will do whatever he pleases.”
1 Samuel 25:24
She fell at his feet and said, “On me alone, my lord, be the blame. And please let your maidservant speak to you, and listen to the words of your maidservant.
By forbearance a ruler may be persuaded,
And a soft tongue breaks the bone.
