Ecclesiasticus 28:10

“As the matter of the fire is, so it burneth: and as a mans strength is, so is his wrath, and according to his riches his anger riseth, and the stronger they are which contend, the more they will be inflamed.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 28:10

7. Remember the Commaundements, & beare no malice to thy neighbour: [remember] the Couenant of the highest, and winke at ignorance. 8. Abstaine from strife, and thou shalt diminish thy sinnes: for a furious man will kindle strife. 9. A sinfull man disquieteth friends, and maketh debate among them that be at peace. 10. As the matter of the fire is, so it burneth: and as a mans strength is, so is his wrath, and according to his riches his anger riseth, and the stronger they are which contend, the more they will be inflamed. 11. An hastie contention kindleth a fire, and an hasty fighting sheddeth blood. 12. If thou blow the sparke, it shall burne: if thou spit vpon it, it shall bee quenched, and both these come out of thy mouth. 13. Curse the whisperer, and double tongued: for such haue destroyed many that were at peace.
