He who is slow to wrath has great understanding,
But he who is impulsive exalts folly.
The end of a thing is better than its beginning;
The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
A soft answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
Then his master, after he had called him, said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?’ And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him.
1 Corinthians 13:4
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath,
Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
