Proverbs 26:20-22 KJV
Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out:
So where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire;
So is a contentious man to kindle strife.
The words of a talebearer are as wounds,
And they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
