« Prev That anger must be overcome, lest it constrain us… Next »

8. That anger must be overcome, lest it constrain us to sin.

In Solomon in the Proverbs: “Better is a patient man than a strong man; for he who restrains his anger is better than he who taketh a city.”42274227    Prov. xvi. 32. Also in the same place:  “The imprudent man declareth his anger on the same day, but the crafty man hideth away his dishonour.”42284228    Prov. xii. 16. Of this same thing to the Ephesians: “Be ye angry, and sin not. Let not the sun set upon your wrath.”42294229    Eph. iv. 16. Also in the Gospel according to Matthew: “Ye have heard that it was said by the ancients, Thou shalt not kill; and whoever shall kill shall be guilty of the judgment. But I say unto you, That every one who is angry with his brother without cause shall be guilty of the judgment.”42304230    Matt. v. 21, 22.
