15 A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping of a leaky roof in a rainstorm;
15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.
15 A continual dripping on a rainy day and a quarrelsome wife are alike;
15 A nagging spouse is like the drip, drip, drip of a leaky faucet;
15 A continual dripping on a very rainy day And a contentious woman are alike;
15 A quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping on a rainy day.
(Read Proverbs 27:15-16)
The contentions of a neighbour may be like a sharp shower, troublesome for a time; the contentions of a wife are like constant rain.
