1. Another time he went into the synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there.
2. Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath.
3. Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, "Stand up in front of everyone."
4. Then Jesus asked them, "Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?" But they remained silent.
5. He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored.
6. Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.
A quick-tempered man does foolish things, and a crafty man is hated.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.
A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel.
A man's wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense.
24. Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered,
25. or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared.
A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.
An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.
