Judges 8:1-3 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The men of Ephraim said to him, “Why have you done this to us, not calling us when you went to fight against the Midianites?” And they argued with him violently.

So he said to them, “What have I done now compared to you? Is not the gleaning of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer? God handed over to you Oreb and Zeeb, the two princes of Midian. What was I able to do compared to you?” When he said this, their anger against him subsided.

Proverbs 25:15 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

15 A ruler can be persuaded through patience,
and a gentle tongue can break a bone.

Ecclesiastes 10:4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

If the ruler’s anger rises against you, don’t leave your place,
for calmness puts great offenses to rest.
