Proverbs 12:16 (NKJV) — 16 A fool’s wrath is known at once, But a prudent man covers shame.
The fool’s temper. Another mark of fools is that they have no control over their anger. (See Proverbs 25:28.) Prudent people do not shame themselves by foolish public displays of temper. They rule their spirit; they do not tell all they know, do all they feel like doing, or say all they think.
