Bible

Proverb 15:1 is one of my favorite verses in the bible. I try to think and remember this verse every time I get angry and mad at something. Being a father of four young kids, this is almost a daily occurrence. Reacting to something while you are mad almost always end up putting you into a worst position then if you calmly approach the issue.

The main thing this verse teaches you is to approach any situation with a calm attitude and the results will end up being better than if you approach it with anger. Next time when something makes you angry, approach it with a calm cool head and see what happens.

Here are three different bible translations of Proverb 15:1.

Proverbs 15:1

New International Version (NIV)

1 A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.

 

Proverbs 15:1

New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

1A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.

 

Proverbs 15:1

English Standard Version (ESV)

1 A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
