Do not get angry in haste

Here’s the verse about getting angry:

Ecclesiastes 7

Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.  -kjv

Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.  -niv

Don’t let your spirit rush to be angry, for anger abides in the heart of fools.  -hcsb

There’s a certain impulse that comes with anger that tends to be destructive and hardens the will.  What if persecution comes? How are we to respond? Do we become angry because of the persecution?

  1. I must totally agree with the Holy Scriptures. I find myself becoming angry when I am tired and one mistake makes another. That is like sin and that is sin. I was just thinking…..Without The Holy Spirit within it is sometimes very hard to be like Jesus.
