20 Bible Verses about Self-control

«Proverbs 25:28»
He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.الرَّجُلُ الْمُفْتَقِرُ لِضَبْطِ النَّفْسِ مِثْلُ مَدِينَةٍ مُنْهَدِمَةٍ لَا سُورَ لَهَا.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.فَإِنَّ اللهَ قَدْ أَعْطَانَا لَا رُوحَ الْجُبْنِ بَلْ رُوحَ الْقُوَّةِ وَالْمَحَبَّةِ وَالْبَصِيرَةِ.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.الْبَطِيءُ الْغَضَبِ خَيْرٌ مِنَ الْمُحَارِبِ الْعَاتِي، وَالضَّابِطُ أَهْوَاءَ رُوحِهِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ قَاهِرِ الْمُدُنِ.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.فَمِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ، عَلَيْكُمْ أَنْ تَبْذُلُوا كُلَّ اجْتِهَادٍ وَنَشَاطٍ فِي مُمَارَسَةِ إِيمَانِكُمْ حَتَّى يُؤَدِّيَ بِكُمْ إِلَى الْفَضِيلَةِ. وَأَقْرِنُوا الْفَضِيلَةَ بِالتَّقَدُّمِ فِي الْمَعْرِفَةِ، وَالْمَعْرِفَةَ بِضَبْطِ النَّفْسِ، وَضَبْطَ النَّفْسِ بِالصَّبْرِ، وَالصَّبْرَ بِالتَّقْوَى، وَالتَّقْوَى بِالْمَوَدَّةِ الأَخَوِيَّةِ، وَالْمَوَدَّةَ الأَخَوِيَّةَ بِالْمَحَبَّةِ.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.وَأَمَّا ثَمَرُ الرُّوحِ فَهُوَ: الْمَحَبَّةُ وَالْفَرَحُ وَالسَّلامُ، وَطُولُ الْبَالِ وَاللُّطْفُ وَالصَّلاحُ، وَالأَمَانَةُ وَالْوَدَاعَةُ وَضَبْطُ النَّفْسِ. وَلَيْسَ مِنْ قَانُونٍ يَمْنَعُ مِثْلَ هذِهِ الْفَضَائِلِ.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.فِي اللِّسَانِ حَيَاةٌ أَوْ مَوْتٌ، وَالْمُوْلَعُونَ بِاسْتِخْدَامِهِ يَتَحَمَّلُونَ الْعَوَاقِبَ.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.لِذَلِكَ، يَا إِخْوَتِي الأَحِبَّاءَ، عَلَى كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْكُمْ أَنْ يَكُونَ مُسْرِعاً إِلَى الإِصْغَاءِ، غَيْرَ مُتَسَرِّعٍ فِي الْكَلامِ، بَطِيءَ الْغَضَبِ.
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.لَمْ يُصِبْكُمْ مِنَ التَّجَارِبِ إِلّا مَا هُوَ بَشَرِيٌّ. وَلَكِنَّ اللهَ أَمِينٌ وَجَدِيرٌ بِالثِّقَةِ، فَلا يَدَعُكُمْ تُجَرَّبُونَ فَوْقَ مَا تُطِيقُونَ، بَلْ يُدَبِّرُ لَكُمْ مَعَ التَّجْرِبَةِ سَبِيلَ الْخُرُوجِ مِنْهَا لِتُطِيقُوا احْتِمَالَهَا.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.إِذَنْ، لَا نَنَمْ كَمَا يَنَامُ الآخَرُونَ، بَلْ لِنَظَلّ سَاهِرِينَ وَصَاحِينَ.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.فَإِنَّ نِعْمَةَ اللهِ الَّتِي تَحْمِلُ مَعَهَا الْخَلاصَ لِجَمِيعِ النَّاسِ، قَدْ ظَهَرَتْ. وَهِي تُعَلِّمُنَا أَنْ نَقْطَعَ عَلاقَتَنَا بِالإِبَاحِيَّةِ وَالشَّهَوَاتِ الْعَالَمِيَّةِ، وَأَنْ نَحْيَا فِي الْعَصْرِ الْحَاضِرِ حَيَاةَ التَّعَقُّلِ وَالْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى.
A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.يُبْدِي الأَحْمَقُ غَيْظَهُ فِي لَحْظَةٍ، أَمَّا الْعَاقِلُ فَيَتَجَاهَلُ الإِهَانَةَ.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.وَلا تَتَشَبَّهُوا بِهَذَا الْعَالَمِ، بَلْ تَغَيَّرُوا بِتَجْدِيدِ الذِّهْنِ، لِتُمَيِّزُوا مَا هِيَ إِرَادَةُ اللهِ الصَّالِحَةُ الْمَقْبُولَةُ الْكَامِلَةُ.
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.بَلْ اُقْمِعُ جَسَدِي وَأَسْتَعْبَدُهُ، مَخَافَةَ أَنْ يَتَبَيَّنَ أَنِّي غَيْرُ مُؤَهَّلٍ (لِلْمُجَازَاةِ) بَعْدَمَا دَعَوْتُ الآخَرِينَ إِلَيْهَا!
A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.الْجَاهِلُ يُفَجِّرُ غَضَبَهُ، أَمَّا الْحَكِيمُ فَيَكْبَحُهُ بِهُدُوءٍ.
And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.وَكُلُّ مُتَبَارٍ يَفْرِضُ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ تَدْرِيباً صَارِماً فِي شَتَّى الْمَجَالاتِ. فَهَؤُلاءِ الْمُتَبَارُونَ يَفْعَلُونَ ذَلِكَ لِيَفُوزُوا بِإِكْلِيلٍ فَانٍ، وَأَمَّا نَحْنُ فَلِنَفُوزَ بِإِكْلِيلٍ غَيْرِ فَانٍ.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.فَإِنَّ حَرْبَنَا لَيْسَتْ ضِدَّ ذَوِي اللَّحْمِ وَالدَّمِ، بَلْ ضِدُّ الرِّئَاسَاتِ، ضِدُّ السُّلُطَاتِ، ضِدُّ أَسْيَادِ الْعَالَمِ حُكَّامِ هَذَا الظَّلامِ، ضِدُّ قِوَى الشَّرِّ الرُّوحِيَّةِ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ.
I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?أَبْرَمْتُ عَهْداً مَعَ عَيْنَيَّ، فَكَيْفَ أَرْنُو إِلَى عَذْرَاءَ؟
Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.فَانْتَبِهُوا لأَنْفُسِكُمْ، لِكَيْ لَا يَضِيعَ الْجَهْدُ الَّذِي بَذَلْنَاهُ فِي سَبِيلِكُمْ، بَلْ لِتَنَالُوا أَجْرَكُمْ كَامِلاً.
Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.لَا تَحِدْ يَمِيناً أَوْ يَسَاراً، وَأَبْعِدْ رِجْلَكَ عَنْ مَسَالِكِ الشَّرِّ.
Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.فَلا يَمْنَعْ أَحَدُكُمَا الآخَرَ عَنْ نَفْسِهِ إِلّا حِينَ تَتَّفِقَانِ مَعاً عَلَى ذَلِكَ، وَلِفَتْرَةٍ مُعَيَّنَةٍ، بِقَصْدِ التَّفَرُّغِ لِلصَّلاةِ. وَبَعْدَ ذَلِكَ عُودَا إِلَى عَلاقَتِكُمَا السَّابِقَةِ، لِكَيْ لَا يُجَرِّبَكُمَا الشَّيْطَانُ لِعَدَمِ ضَبْطِ النَّفْسِ.
