19 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; 20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. (James 1:19-20)
The Lord is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy.
A wrathful man stirs up strife, But he who is slow to anger allays contention.
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, And his glory is to overlook a transgression.
Blessings in Christ Jesus Lord of lords, King of kings!
