||Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee
||Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.
||Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well
advised is wisdom.
||Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an
house full of sacrifices with strife.
||The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water:
therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.
||It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every
fool will be meddling.
||Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what
to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbour hath put thee to
||Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where
there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
||As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a
contentious man to kindle strife.
||The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down
into the innermost parts of the belly.
||He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he
that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.
||Surely the churning of milk bringeth forth butter, and
the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood: so the forcing of
wrath bringeth forth strife.
