NKJV
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil.
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.
Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt. Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.Hatred stirs up strife, But love covers all sins.
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.He who is slow to wrath has great understanding, But he who is impulsive exalts folly.
He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”
Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.By pride comes nothing but strife, But with the well-advised is wisdom.
Fools show their annoyance at once, but the prudent overlook an insult.A fool’s wrath is known at once, But a prudent man covers shame.
It is to one’s honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel.It is honorable for a man to stop striving, Since any fool can start a quarrel.
Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end.A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.
See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God.
‘Return, faithless Israel,’ declares the Lord, ‘I will frown on you no longer, for I am faithful,’ declares the Lord, ‘I will not be angry forever.’‘Return, backsliding Israel,’ says the Lord; ‘I will not cause My anger to fall on you. For I am merciful,’ says the Lord; ‘I will not remain angry forever.’
