12 Bible Verses about Gentleness

English Standard Version (ESV)

NIV KJV ESV NKJV
Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand.
Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.
A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
Gracious words are like a honeycomb,
sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason frankly with your neighbor, lest you incur sin because of him. You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.
So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Thus says the Lord of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another, do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor, and let none of you devise evil against another in your heart.
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
