But if you bite and devour one another, be careful that you are not destroyed by each other.
Arrogance only brings quarreling, but those receiving advice are wise.
I am in favor of peace; but when I speak, they are in favor of war. A Song of Ascents
who craft evil plans in their minds, inciting wars every day.
The quickly angered man stirs up contention, but anyone who controls his temper calms a dispute.
The person who loves transgression loves strife; the person who builds a high gate invites destruction.
A fool's words bring strife, and his mouth invites fighting.
Charcoal is to hot coals as wood is to fire; so also a quarrelsome man fuels strife.
Why are you forcing me to look at iniquity and to stare at wickedness? Social havoc and oppression are all around me; there are legal conflicts, and disputes abound.
It's better to live in the wilderness than to live with a contentious and irritable woman.
The wicked are ransom for the righteous, and the unfaithful for the upright.
Precious treasures and oil are found where the wise live, but a foolish man devours them.
It's better to live in a corner on the roof than in a house with a contentious woman.
