(Pro 22:24 KJV) Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
What is the problem with being “hot-tempered” (2534)? Such people are looking for trouble. It is interesting that when you follow this word back to its root you find that one of the uses is describing an animal that is “in heat”. Not only are they ready to rumble but they put out a smell that attracts those who want to participate. We can sense the anger in people. We are to avoid it.
So? Would you want to get into a car driven by someone with a short trigger? Would you hand a loaded gun to someone who is frothing at the mouth? God expects us to use our brains. Don’t disappoint Him.
