Proverbs 12

Proverbs 12:4
12:4 A wife of noble character [a capable wife] is her husband’s crown [a symbol of honor], but a disgraceful wife [a wife who causes shame and lowers her husbands standing in the community] is like decay in his bones.

Proverbs 12:16
12:16 [contrast two responses to same situation…] A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent [sensible] man overlooks an insult.

Proverbs 12:18
12:18 Reckless [or rash; cf. Matt. 5:22] words pierce like a sword [we can destroy others with words], but the tongue of the wise brings healing [cf. Eph. 4:29].
