If a wise man has a controversy with a foolish and arrogant man,
The foolish man [ignores logic and fairness and] only rages or laughs, and there is no peace (rest, agreement).
The bloodthirsty hate the blameless [because of his integrity],
But the upright are concerned for his life.
A [shortsighted] fool always loses his temper and displays his anger,
But a wise man [uses self-control and] holds it back.
