Gentleness and meekness in character with love will turn away the wrath, but grievous and hurtful words will stir up strife and bitterness and hatred.
Many times when hurtful or vengful words are spoken the mind will say I will tell you something to realy hurt you or do you likewise this is to gratify self the self-less child of God will meet all hateful and hurtful words will love peace and joy in the Holy Ghost and no doubt this will confuse the oppreser of hurtful and grievous words because they are looking for you to respond likewise.
Eccl 7:9 says- be not hast in thy spirit to be angry for anger resteth in the bossom of fools.
Proverbs 15:23; Proverbs 16

It is responding to others in a gentle way, not in anger or sarcasm. No matter how they talk to you, do not respond as they have. If you are harsh back, it will escalate.

Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. In two words this is... Conciliatory speech. The way one answers another person will have an effect on the response. Therefore it is wise to use a gentle answer to turn away wrath. More than merely gentle or soft, the idea seems to be conciliatory, i.e., an answer that restores good temper and reasonableness. To use a "harsh" word is to cause "pain" and will bring an angry response.

Gentleness is one of the fruits of the Spirit. Gal.5:22. Gentleness of speach will disarm the most furious, but words spoken in anger and judgement will only induce wrath! Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Prov.18:21..we can speak life to others bringing peace and hope and encouragement or we can speak the opposit causing hurt and destroying hopes and dreams. What we say and how we say it, speakes volumes and we can never take it back!Our speach must be seasoned with good things that produce good things from others. Words are very powerful. Let us be like Christ who was a word worker that when we also speak it creates, light, truth, in love...Genaveve

When you are in a heated communication with someone, it is best to talk to him or her  in a calm voice but if you talk to them harshly, it just makes them more mad and angry.
