13 Bible Verses about Contentment

« Philippians 4:12 »

I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.أَعْرِفُ أَنْ أَتَّضِعَ وَأَعْرِفُ أَيْضًا أَنْ أَسْتَفْضِلَ. فِي كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَفِي جَمِيعِ ٱلْأَشْيَاءِ قَدْ تَدَرَّبْتُ أَنْ أَشْبَعَ وَأَنْ أَجُوعَ، وَأَنْ أَسْتَفْضِلَ وَأَنْ أَنْقُصَ.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.لِأَنَّنَا لَمْ نَدْخُلِ ٱلْعَالَمَ بِشَيْءٍ، وَوَاضِحٌ أَنَّنَا لَا نَقْدِرُ أَنْ نَخْرُجَ مِنْهُ بِشَيْءٍ. فَإِنْ كَانَ لَنَا قُوتٌ وَكِسْوَةٌ، فَلْنَكْتَفِ بِهِمَا.
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.لِتَكُنْ سِيرَتُكُمْ خَالِيَةً مِنْ مَحَبَّةِ ٱلْمَالِ. كُونُوا مُكْتَفِينَ بِمَا عِنْدَكُمْ، لِأَنَّهُ قَالَ: «لَا أُهْمِلُكَ وَلَا أَتْرُكُكَ».
But godliness with contentment is great gain.وَأَمَّا ٱلتَّقْوَى مَعَ ٱلْقَنَاعَةِ فَهِيَ تِجَارَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.لَيْسَ أَنِّي أَقُولُ مِنْ جِهَةِ ٱحْتِيَاجٍ، فَإِنِّي قَدْ تَعَلَّمْتُ أَنْ أَكُونَ مُكْتَفِيًا بِمَا أَنَا فِيهِ.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.لِذَلِكَ أُسَرُّ بِٱلضَّعَفَاتِ وَٱلشَّتَائِمِ وَٱلضَّرُورَاتِ وَٱلِٱضْطِهَادَاتِ وَٱلضِّيقَاتِ لِأَجْلِ ٱلْمَسِيحِ. لِأَنِّي حِينَمَا أَنَا ضَعِيفٌ فَحِينَئِذٍ أَنَا قَوِيٌّ.
Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.مُهْتَمِّينَ بَعْضُكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ ٱهْتِمَامًا وَاحِدًا، غَيْرَ مُهْتَمِّينَ بِٱلْأُمُورِ ٱلْعَالِيَةِ بَلْ مُنْقَادِينَ إِلَى ٱلْمُتَّضِعِينَ. لَا تَكُونُوا حُكَمَاءَ عِنْدَ أَنْفُسِكُمْ.
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?لِذَلِكَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: لَا تَهْتَمُّوا لِحَيَاتِكُمْ بِمَا تَأْكُلُونَ وَبِمَا تَشْرَبُونَ، وَلَا لِأَجْسَادِكُمْ بِمَا تَلْبَسُونَ. أَلَيْسَتِ ٱلْحَيَاةُ أَفْضَلَ مِنَ ٱلطَّعَامِ، وَٱلْجَسَدُ أَفْضَلَ مِنَ ٱللِّبَاسِ؟
And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.وَقَالَ لَهُمُ: «ٱنْظُرُوا وَتَحَفَّظُوا مِنَ ٱلطَّمَعِ، فَإِنَّهُ مَتَى كَانَ لِأَحَدٍ كَثِيرٌ فَلَيْسَتْ حَيَاتُهُ مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِ».
Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.اَلْقَلِيلُ مَعَ ٱلْعَدْلِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ دَخْلٍ جَزِيلٍ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ.
Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.لَا تَهْتَمُّوا لِحَيَاتِكُمْ بِمَا تَأْكُلُونَ، وَلَا لِلْجَسَدِ بِمَا تَلْبَسُونَ. اَلْحَيَاةُ أَفْضَلُ مِنَ ٱلطَّعَامِ، وَٱلْجَسَدُ أَفْضَلُ مِنَ ٱللِّبَاسِ.
Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.قَالَ لَهُ فِيلُبُّسُ: «يَا سَيِّدُ، أَرِنَا ٱلْآبَ وَكَفَانَا».
Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.فَقَامَ أَيُّوبُ وَمَزَّقَ جُبَّتَهُ، وَجَزَّ شَعْرَ رَأْسِهِ، وَخَرَّ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَسَجَدَ، وَقَالَ: «عُرْيَانًا خَرَجْتُ مِنْ بَطْنِ أُمِّي، وَعُرْيَانًا أَعُودُ إِلَى هُنَاكَ. ٱلرَّبُّ أَعْطَى وَٱلرَّبُّ أَخَذَ، فَلْيَكُنِ ٱسْمُ ٱلرَّبِّ مُبَارَكًا».
