Sirach 28:12
If you blow on a spark, it will flame up, and if you spit on it, it will go out; nonetheless, both come out of your mouth.
For as the wood of the forest is, so the fire burneth: and as a man's strength is, so shall his anger be, and according to his riches he shall increase his anger.
You can blow on a spark to make it glow, or you can spit on it to put it out. Either way, you do it with your mouth.
If you blow on a spark, it turns into flame, if you spit on it, it dies out; yet both you do with your mouth!
If you blow on a spark, it will glow; if you spit on it, it will be put out; yet both come out of your mouth.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow; if you spit on it, it will be put out; yet both come out of your mouth.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow; if you spit on it, it will be put out; yet both come out of your mouth.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow; if you spit on it, it will be put out; yet both come out of your mouth.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow; if you spit on it, it will be put out; and both come out of your mouth.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow; if you spit on it, it will be put out; and both come out of your mouth.
If thou blowest, as fire it shall burn on high; and if thou spittest thereon, it shall be quenched; ever either, that is, a word kindling ire, and a word refraining it, come forth (out) of the mouth. [If it shall blow, as fire it shall burn; and if thou shalt spit upon it, it shall be quenched; either from the mouth go forth.]
