Anger and Temper.
Definition: A strong feeling of displeasure and usually of opposition toward someone or something, often brought about by real or imagined injury; rage; fury; wrath. Anger is a broad term that applies to various levels of emotion that mayor may not be shown. Temper, as used here refers to "the tendency to be easily angered."
19 ¶ Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
32 ¶ He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
28 ¶ He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
24 ¶ Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
1 ¶ From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
19 ¶ A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment:
8 ¶ Go not forth hastily to strive, lest thou know not what to do in the end thereof, when thy neighbor hath put thee to shame.
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
11 ¶ A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.
17 ¶ He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly
29 ¶ He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
11 ¶ The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
22 ¶ An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.
2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
6 Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin
1 ¶ A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.
7 And there was a strife between the herdsmen of Abram's cattle and the herdsmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
8 And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdsmen and thy herdsmen; for we be brethren.
9 Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
1 Corinthians 13:5
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
8 ¶ But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
12 ¶ Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
