Sirach 25:15
No poison is worse than a snake’s poison, and no anger is worse than an enemy’s anger.
Blessed is the man, to whom it is given to have the fear of God: he that holdeth it, to whom shall he be likened?
No poison is deadlier than the poison of a snake, and no anger is deadlier than the anger of a woman.
There is no poison worse than that of a serpent, no venom greater than that of a woman.
There is no venom worse than a snake’s venom, and no anger worse than a woman’s wrath.
There is no venom worse than a snake’s venom, and no anger worse than a woman’s wrath.
There is no venom worse than a snake’s venom, and no anger worse than a woman’s wrath.
There is no venom worse than a snake’s venom, and no anger worse than a woman’s wrath.
There is no venom worse than a snake’s venom, and no wrath worse than an enemy’s wrath.
There is no venom worse than a snake’s venom, and no wrath worse than an enemy’s wrath.
None head is worse than the head of an adder dwelling in (a) shadow; and none ire is above the ire of a woman. [There is not an head wickeder over the head of a shadow adder; and there is not wrath over the wrath of a woman.]
