Proverbs 19:11-13 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)
11 Those with good sense are slow to anger,
and it is their glory to overlook an offence.
12 A king’s anger is like the growling of a lion,
but his favour is like dew on the grass.
13 A stupid child is ruin to a father,
and a wife’s quarrelling is a continual dripping of rain.

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.
