13 Bible Verses about Contentment

I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.وَأَعْرِفُ كَيْفَ أَعِيشُ فِي الْعَوَزِ، وَكَيْفَ أَعِيشُ فِي الْوَفْرَةِ. فَإِنِّي، فِي كُلِّ شَيْءٍ، وَفِي جَمِيعِ الأَحْوَالِ، مُتَدَرِّبٌ عَلَى الشَّبَعِ وَعَلَى الْجُوعِ، وَعَلَى الْعَيْشِ فِي الْوَفْرَةِ أَوْ فِي الْعَوَزِ.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.فَنَحْنُ لَمْ نَدْخُلِ الْعَالَمَ حَامِلِينَ شَيْئاً، وَلا نَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ نَخْرُجَ مِنْهُ حَامِلِينَ شَيْئاً. إِنَّمَا، مَادَامَ لَنَا قُوتٌ وَلِبَاسٌ، فَلْنَكُنْ قَانِعِينَ بِهِمَا.
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”اجْعَلُوا سِيرَتَكُمْ مُتَرَفِّعَةً عَنْ حُبِّ الْمَالِ، وَاقْنَعُوا بِمَا عِنْدَكُمْ، لأَنَّ اللهَ يَقُولُ: «لا أَتْرُكُكَ، وَلا أَتَخَلَّى عَنْكَ أَبَداً!»
Now godliness with contentment is great gain.أَمَّا التَّقْوَى مَعَ الْقَنَاعَةِ فَهِيَ تِجَارَةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ.
Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.لَسْتُ أَعْنِي أَنِّي كُنْتُ فِي حَاجَةٍ، فَأَنَا قَدْ تَعَلَّمْتُ أَنْ أَكُونَ قَنُوعاً فِي كُلِّ حَالٍ.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.فَلأَجْلِ الْمَسِيحِ، تَسُرُّنِي الضَّعَفَاتُ وَالإِهَانَاتُ وَالضِّيقَاتُ وَالاضْطِهَادَاتُ وَالصُّعُوبَاتُ، لأَنِّي حِينَمَا أَكُونُ ضَعِيفاً، فَحِينَئِذٍ أَكُونُ قَوِيًّا!
Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.كُونُوا مُتَوَافِقِينَ بَعْضُكُمْ مَعَ بَعْضٍ، غَيْرَ مُهْتَمِّينَ بِالأُمُورِ الْعَالِيَةِ، بَلْ مُسَايِرِينَ ذَوِي الْمَرَاكِزِ الْوَضِيعَةِ. لَا تَكُونُوا حُكَمَاءَ فِي نَظَرِ أَنْفُسِكُمْ.
Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?لِذلِكَ أَقُولُ لَكُمْ: لَا تَهْتَمُّوا لِمَعِيشَتِكُمْ بِشَأْنِ مَا تَأْكُلُونَ وَمَا تَشْرَبُونَ، وَلا لأَجْسَادِكُمْ بِشَأْنِ مَا تَلْبَسُونَ. أَلَيْسَتِ الْحَيَاةُ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ مُجَرَّدِ طَعَامٍ، وَالْجَسَدُ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ مُجَرَّدِ كِسَاءٍ؟
And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”وَقَالَ لِلْجَمْعِ: «احْذَرُوا وَتَحَفَّظُوا مِنَ الطَّمَعِ. فَمَتَى كَانَ الإِنْسَانُ فِي سِعَةٍ، لَا تَكُنْ حَيَاتُهُ فِي أَمْوَالِهِ».
Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice.الْمَالُ الْقَلِيلُ مَعَ الْعَدْلِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ دَخْلٍ وَفِيرٍ حَرَامٍ.
Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.لَا تَهْتَمُّوا لِحَيَاتِكُمْ بِمَا تَأْكُلُونَ، وَلا لأَجْسَادِكُمْ بِمَا تَكْتَسُونَ. إِنَّ الْحَيَاةَ أَكْثَرُ مِنْ مُجَرَّدِ طَعَامٍ، وَالْجَسَدَ أَكْثَرُ مِنْ مُجَرَّدِ كِسَاءٍ.
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”فَقَالَ لَهُ فِيلِبُّسُ: «يَا سَيِّدُ، أَرِنَا الآبَ وَكَفَانَا!»
Then Job arose, tore his robe, and shaved his head; and he fell to the ground and worshiped. And he said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.”فَقَامَ أَيُّوبُ وَمَزَّقَ جُبَّتَهُ وَجَزَّ شَعْرَ رَأْسِهِ وَأَكَبَّ عَلَى الأَرْضِ سَاجِداً، وَقَالَ: «عُرْيَاناً خَرَجْتُ مِنْ بَطْنِ أُمِّي وَعُرْيَاناً أَعُودُ إِلَى هُنَاكَ. الرَّبُّ أَعْطَى وَالرَّبُّ أَخَذَ، فَلْيَكُنِ اسْمُ الرَّبِّ مُبَارَكاً».
