A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Mark the blameless man, and behold the upright; for the man of peace will have posterity. But transgressors will be altogether destroyed; the posterity of the wicked will be cut off.
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government shall rest on His shoulders; and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and for evermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7
