Bible texts on anger and more – 4 (all verses are the King James Version):
Proverbs 22:24 – Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
Proverbs 25:23 – The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue.
Proverbs 29:22 – An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.
James 3:6-12:6 And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:8 But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet [water] and bitter?12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so [can] no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
