For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
A fool's wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covers shame.
But the fruit of the Spirit (o. pneuma) is love, (o. agape) joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, wilful restrain: against such there is no law.
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
For God has not given us the spirit (o. pneuma) of fear; but of power, and of love, (o. agape) and of a sound mind.
And every man that strives for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?
And be not conformed to this world: but be all of you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that all of you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge wilful restrain; and to wilful restrain patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love. (o. agape)
He that has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
A fool utters all his mind: but a wise man keeps it in till afterwards.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that all of you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that all of you may be able to bear it.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that rules his spirit than he that takes a city.
Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove your foot from evil.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
