Proverbs 30:32-33 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

32 [a]If you have foolishly been proud
    or presumptuous—put your hand on your mouth;
33 For as the churning of milk produces curds,
    and the pressing of the nose produces blood,
    the churning of anger produces strife.


  1. 30:32–33 The same Hebrew verb, “to churn, shake,” is applied to milk, the nose (sometimes a symbol of anger), and wrath. In each case something is eventually produced by the constant agitation. The wise make peace and avoid strife, for strife eventually harms those who provoke it.
