13 Bible Verses about Selfishness

Galatians 2:20
King James VersionEnglish Standard Version
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil.Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.
ESV | sin
The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.
Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.
A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.
Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.
Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain!
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
