“He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.” - Proverbs 18:13.
He who is first to bring a matter may present it in such a way as to free himself from any blame. Where one is rash, one may condemn the other party whose version one had not heard. But God knows the failings of man more than anyone else. The law of God says,” One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong; Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days; And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.” (Deuteronomy 19:15-19) Solomon says, “He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.” - Proverbs 18:17
