Therefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: for the wrath of man does not accomplish the righteousness of God.
Be angry, and don’t sin. Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath. Don’t fret, it leads only to evildoing.
He who is slow to anger has great understanding, But he who has a quick temper displays folly.
Don’t be hasty in your spirit to be angry, for anger rests in the bosom of fools.
Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, outcry, and slander, be put away from you, with all malice.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
A wrathful man stirs up contention, But one who is slow to anger appeases strife.
One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty; One who rules his spirit, than he who takes a city.
A fool vents all of his anger, But a wise man brings himself under control.
The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger. It is his glory to overlook an offense.
