15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
18 A hot-tempered man stirs up strife,
but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
32 Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
11 Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
19 A man of great wrath will pay the penalty,
for if you deliver him, you will only have to do it again.
28 Be not a witness against your neighbor without cause,
and do not deceive with your lips.
29 Do not say, “I will do to him as he has done to me;
I will pay the man back for what he has done.”
21 If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,
22 for you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the LORD will reward you.
