Proverbs 19:11-13 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger;
    and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.

12 The king’s wrath is as the roaring of a lion;
    but his favour is as dew upon the grass.

13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father:
    and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.

Proverbs 19:11-13 New International Version (NIV)

11 A person’s wisdom yields patience;
    it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.

12 A king’s rage is like the roar of a lion,
    but his favor is like dew on the grass.

13 A foolish child is a father’s ruin,
    and a quarrelsome wife is like
    the constant dripping of a leaky roof.
