Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated.
He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
