Sirach 22:24
Before there’s a fire, a furnace has vapor and smoke; so before bloodshed there are insults.
He that pricketh the eye, bringeth out tears: and he that pricketh the heart, bringeth forth resentment.
Fumes and smoke appear before the flames do; insults come before violence.
The billowing smoke of a furnace precedes the fire, so insults precede bloodshed.
The vapor and smoke of the furnace precede the fire; so insults precede bloodshed.
The vapour and smoke of the furnace precede the fire; so insults precede bloodshed.
The vapour and smoke of the furnace precede the fire; so insults precede bloodshed.
The vapor and smoke of the furnace precede the fire; so insults precede bloodshed.
The vapor and smoke of the furnace precede the fire; so insults precede bloodshed.
The vapor and smoke of the furnace precede the fire; so insults precede bloodshed.
Heat and smoke of fire is made high before the fire of a chimney; so and cursings, and despisings, and menaces, come before blood. [Before fire of the chimney, moist issue, and the smoke of fire, is enhanced; so and before blood curses, and wrongs, and threats.]
