Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
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.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord shall reward thee.
Proverbs 25:21, 22
For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Ephesians 4:31, 32
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, Ra'ca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar; and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
Leave there thy gift before the alter, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confi-dent.
He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly:
and a man of wicked devices is hated.
Proverbs 14:16, 17
But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath:
fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
