Whoso is short of temper doth folly, And a man of wicked devices is hated.
Proverbs 14:17 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He that is soon angry - קצר אפים ketsar appayim, "short of nostrils:" because, when a man is angry, his nose is contracted, and drawn up towards his eyes.
Dealeth foolishly - He has no time for reflection; he is hurried on by his passions, speaks like a fool, and acts like a madman.
