Proverbs 30:26-33

26 hyraxes are creatures of little power,
    yet they make their home in the crags;
27 locusts have no king,
    yet they advance together in ranks;
28 a lizard can be caught with the hand,
    yet it is found in kings’ palaces.

29 “There are three things that are stately in their stride,
    four that move with stately bearing:
30 a lion, mighty among beasts,
    who retreats before nothing;
31 a strutting rooster, a he-goat,
    and a king secure against revolt.[b]

32 “If you play the fool and exalt yourself,
    or if you plan evil,
    clap your hand over your mouth!
33 For as churning cream produces butter,
    and as twisting the nose produces blood,
    so stirring up anger produces strife.”

One response to “Proverbs 30:26-33

  1. As sure as churning cream produces butter, so does stirring up anger bring strife and contention. The previous verse describes exalting yourself. Being prideful doesn’t just cause resentment, it prevents the presence of service and humility. Where there should be godliness, humility, and service, there instead, is selfishness and pride. This gives place to the devil and strife results.
