33 For as churning cream produces butter, and as twisting the nose produces blood, so stirring up anger produces strife."

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 30:33

Commentary on Proverbs 30:29-33

(Read Proverbs 30:29-33)

We may learn from animals to go well; also to keep our temper under all provocations. We must keep the evil thought in our minds from breaking out into evil speeches. We must not stir up the passions of others. Let nothing be said or done with violence, but every thing with softness and calmness. Alas, how often have we done foolishly in rising up against the Lord our King! Let us humble ourselves before him. And having found peace with Him, let us follow peace with all men.
