Promises - 04 Anger


A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

                ~Proverbs 15:1 (NIV)

For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

                ~Matthew 6:14 (NIV)

A patient man has great understanding,
but a quick-tempered man displays folly.

                ~Proverbs 14:29 (NIV)

Better a patient man than a warrior,
a man who controls his temper than one who takes a city.

                ~Proverbs 16:32 (NIV)

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

                ~Romans 12:19

If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the Lord will reward you.

                ~Proverbs 25:21-22 (NIV)

For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”

                ~Hebrews 10:30 (NIV)
