Harsh, angry, and inconsiderate words are compared here to a drawn sharp sword that brings violence. And as we look around today, it’s very apparent that our world has become more and more angry. But also realize that this anger is never neutral or impartial…is it always either righteous or unrighteous. Sinful or unrighteous anger is directed to hurt someone we’re angry at…it is self-centered, judgmental and takes offense easily. While Godly or righteous anger is directed towards the sin not the sinner, motiving us to right wrongs and speak out against injustice and oppression…thus fighting evil in a way that would always glorify God in the process. So as it says in this Proverb, sinful anger destroys while righteous anger heals.
