    King James Bible - Proverbs 26:20

    Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.

    World English Bible

    For lack of
    wood a fire goes out. Without gossip, a quarrel dies down.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 26:20

    When the
    wood faileth, the fire shall go out: and when the talebearer is taken away, contentions shall cease.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Where no
    wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no tale-bearer, the strife ceaseth.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 26:20

    ¶ Sin leña se apaga el fuego; y donde no hay chismoso, cesa la contienda.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 26:20

    Verse 20. Where no
    wood is, there the fire goeth out ] The tale-receiver and the tale-bearer are the agents of discord. If none received the slander in the first instance, it could not be propagated. Hence our proverb, "The receiver is as bad as the thief." And our laws treat them equally; for the receiver of stolen goods, knowing them to be stolen, is hanged, as well as he who stole them.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. Where no
    wood is, [there] the fire goeth out , etc.] Or “woods” f730 ; where there is a large quantity of wood or fuel, the fire is kept up; but where there is little, scarce any or none at all, it goes out of course; So where [there is] no talebearer, the strife ceaseth ; or is silent f731 : men cease to quarrel one with another; they hold their peace and are silent, when there are none to bring tales from one to another, or any whisperer or backbiter to suggest evil things of each other; or when such are discouraged on both sides, and their tales are not listened to; or when they are detected and thrust out of doors, as they deserve, then strife subsides, and peace ensues. Contention is like a fire, the flame of which is blown up by talebearers and whisperers, who are as incendiaries, and as such are to be treated.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-22 -
    Contention heats the spirit, and puts families and societies into flame. And that fire is commonly kindled and kept burning by whisperer and backbiters.
