Proverbs 17:26-28 The Passion Translation (TPT)

26 It’s horrible to persecute a holy lover of God
or to strike an honorable man for his integrity!
27 Can you bridle your tongue when your heart is under pressure?
That’s how you show that you are wise.
An understanding heart keeps you cool, calm, and collected,
no matter what you’re facing.
28 When even a fool bites his tongue[a]
he’s considered wise.
So shut your mouth when you are provoked—
it will make you look smart.
