This is so true...and with their friends pulled alongside, something that was so trivial, has now escalated into a full blown argument that could've been avoided if they hadn't taken offense or even minded their own business!

A raging, out of control fire will cause people to flee from the impending destruction. A flowing gentle stream will bring enjoyment to people, yet, still move to them where it is flowing. Selah

Even in my local christian web, brothers and sisters are using arrogant and conceited words to defend their truth. Not necessarily hot temper but the boasted arrogancy.

"Have I not written for you thirty sayings
    of counsel and knowledge,"
 

Seems the above is one thirtieth of the wisdom found in the lyrics to be sung by God's people  to  learn the fuller wisdom from God to benefit the reader/student. By eliminating the separating verse numbers not originally included in Psalm 22 can thirty be found? Sing along counting as you go are there thirty to be found or not?

Proverbs 22 English Standard Version (ESV)

 A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
    and favor is better than silver or gold. The rich and the poor meet together;
    the Lord is the Maker of them all. The prudent sees danger and hides himself,
    but the simple go on and suffer for it. The reward for humility and fear of the Lord
    is riches and honor and life. Thorns and snares are in the way of the crooked;
    whoever guards his soul will keep far from them. Train up a child in the way he should go;
    even when he is old he will not depart from it. The rich rules over the poor,
    and the borrower is the slave of the lender. Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity,
    and the rod of his fury will fail. Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed,
    for he shares his bread with the poor. Drive out a scoffer, and strife will go out,
    and quarreling and abuse will cease. He who loves purity of heart,
    and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend. The eyes of the Lord keep watch over knowledge,
    but he overthrows the words of the traitor. The sluggard says, “There is a lion outside!
    I shall be killed in the streets!” The mouth of forbidden[c] women is a deep pit;
    he with whom the Lord is angry will fall into it. Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
    but the rod of discipline drives it far from him. Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth,
    or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty. Incline your ear, and hear the words of the wise,
    and apply your heart to my knowledge, for it will be pleasant if you keep them within you,
    if all of them are ready on your lips. That your trust may be in the Lord,
    I have made them known to you today, even to you. Have I not written for you thirty sayings
    of counsel and knowledge, to make you know what is right and true,
    that you may give a true answer to those who sent you? Do not rob the poor, because he is poor,
    or crush the afflicted at the gate, for the Lord will plead their cause
    and rob of life those who rob them. Make no friendship with a man given to anger,
    nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways
    and entangle yourself in a snare. Be not one of those who give pledges,
    who put up security for debts. If you have nothing with which to pay,
    why should your bed be taken from under you? Do not move the ancient landmark
    that your fathers have set. Do you see a man skillful in his work?
    He will stand before kings;
    he will not stand before obscure men.
