Memory Verses for Anger

James 1:19-20, "Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God."

Proverbs 15:1, "A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger."

Ephesians 4:31-32, "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."

Psalm 37:8, "Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil."

Matthew 6:14, "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:"
