A new segment was posted to the Mishlei section on Monday, June 6. This segment actually covers two proverbs, 18:06 and 18:07.
There are people who enter any verbal exchange in an argumentative or confrontational tone. They think their aggressive attitude protects them from being taken advantage of. Such people are especially afraid of being considered soft or weak. They use their mastery of language to put other people at a disadvantage and they think they will thereby succeed in any test of wills.
