Pr 24:28–29

24:28, 29 If, as seems likely, these two verses belong together, there is even more at stake than the need to avoid giving false witness (6:16, 19). Revenge is born out of anger and the heat of passion. The loss of control depicted in v. 29 is the opposite of the self-restraint called for by biblical wisdom.
