20 Bible Verses about Self-control


NIV KJV ESV NKJV
X
KEH
Whoever has no rule over his own spirit Is like a city broken down, without walls.الرَّجُلُ الْمُفْتَقِرُ لِضَبْطِ النَّفْسِ مِثْلُ مَدِينَةٍ مُنْهَدِمَةٍ لَا سُورَ لَهَا.
For God has not given us a 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 who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.الْبَطِيءُ الْغَضَبِ خَيْرٌ مِنَ الْمُحَارِبِ الْعَاتِي، وَالضَّابِطُ أَهْوَاءَ رُوحِهِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ قَاهِرِ الْمُدُنِ.
But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.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, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. 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 those who love it will eat its fruit.فِي اللِّسَانِ حَيَاةٌ أَوْ مَوْتٌ، وَالْمُوْلَعُونَ بِاسْتِخْدَامِهِ يَتَحَمَّلُونَ الْعَوَاقِبَ.
So then, 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.
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you 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 others do, but let us watch and be sober.إِذَنْ، لَا نَنَمْ كَمَا يَنَامُ الآخَرُونَ، بَلْ لِنَظَلّ سَاهِرِينَ وَصَاحِينَ.
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age.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 known at once, But a prudent man covers shame.يُبْدِي الأَحْمَقُ غَيْظَهُ فِي لَحْظَةٍ، أَمَّا الْعَاقِلُ فَيَتَجَاهَلُ الإِهَانَةَ.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you 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 discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.بَلْ اُقْمِعُ جَسَدِي وَأَسْتَعْبَدُهُ، مَخَافَةَ أَنْ يَتَبَيَّنَ أَنِّي غَيْرُ مُؤَهَّلٍ (لِلْمُجَازَاةِ) بَعْدَمَا دَعَوْتُ الآخَرِينَ إِلَيْهَا!
A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.الْجَاهِلُ يُفَجِّرُ غَضَبَهُ، أَمَّا الْحَكِيمُ فَيَكْبَحُهُ بِهُدُوءٍ.
And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.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 do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly 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 have made a covenant with my eyes; Why then should I look upon a young woman?أَبْرَمْتُ عَهْداً مَعَ عَيْنَيَّ، فَكَيْفَ أَرْنُو إِلَى عَذْرَاءَ؟
Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.فَانْتَبِهُوا لأَنْفُسِكُمْ، لِكَيْ لَا يَضِيعَ الْجَهْدُ الَّذِي بَذَلْنَاهُ فِي سَبِيلِكُمْ، بَلْ لِتَنَالُوا أَجْرَكُمْ كَامِلاً.
Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.لَا تَحِدْ يَمِيناً أَوْ يَسَاراً، وَأَبْعِدْ رِجْلَكَ عَنْ مَسَالِكِ الشَّرِّ.
Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.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.
