But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.
I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction.
A fool's lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes.
As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife.
Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.
It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright.
There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.
It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.
