Sirach 8:16
Don’t get in a fight with hot-tempered people, and don’t travel through the desert with them, because spilling blood is nothing to them, and where there’s no one to help, they will strike you down.
Be not surety above thy power: and if thou be surety, think as if thou wert to pay it.
You should not get into an argument with anyone who has a hot temper or go to some place where the two of you will be alone. Violence means nothing to such a person, and he will attack you when there is no one to help you.
Do not defy the quick-tempered, or ride with them through the desert. For bloodshed is nothing to them; when there is no one to help, they will destroy you.
Do not pick a fight with the quick-tempered, and do not journey with them through lonely country, because bloodshed means nothing to them, and where no help is at hand, they will strike you down.

Do not fight with a wrathful man, and do not cross the wilderness with him; because blood is as nothing in his sight, and where no help is at hand, he will strike you down.
Make thou not chiding [or jangling] with a wrathful man, and go thou not into (a) desert with an hardy man; for why blood, that is, shedding out of innocent blood, is as nought before him, and where none help is, [or and where is not help], (or where there is no help), he shall hurtle thee down.
