Proverbs 30:32-33 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Keep Calm and Quiet

32 If you are such a godless fool as to honor yourself,
    or if you scheme,
        you had better put your hand over your mouth.
33             As churning milk produces butter
                and punching a nose produces blood,
                    so stirring up anger[a] produces a fight.

Footnotes:

  1. Proverbs 30:33 In Hebrew there is a play on words in verse 33 where the same verb is used to express all three actions.
