Proverbs 14: Ver. 29:
He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding:
but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
He that is slow to anger is of great understanding.
“The wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable,” tractable.
Thunder, hail, tempest, neither trouble nor hurt celestial bodies.
Anger may rush into a wise man’s bosom, not rest there: Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools; Ec 7:9. It dwells only where it domineers, and that is only where a fool is master of the family.
A wise man either receives it not or soon rids it.
Be slow to wrath, is a lesson that God hath engraven, as one wittily observeth in our very nature. For the last letter that any child ordinarily speaketh is R, and that is the radical letter of all words of strife and wrath in almost all languages?
; αρα, οργη; ira, horror, furor ; wrath, war, jar, strife, &c.
