A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir
up anger. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but
the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
[He that is] slow to anger [is] better than the mighty; and
he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious
man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare
to thy soul.
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his
neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and
sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath.
Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may
be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in
the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine
as lights in the world.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to
hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh
not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness
and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the
engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
