(James 3:2) For we all stumble many times. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able to bridle also his whole body.
(James 3:5) So, too, the tongue is a small part of the body, and yet it makes great brags. See how small a fire it takes to set a great forest ablaze!

(Galatians 5:19-21) Now the works of the flesh are plainly seen, and they are sexual immorality, uncleanness, brazen conduct, 20 idolatry, spiritism, hostility, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, dissensions, divisions, sects, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and things like these. I am forewarning you about these things, the same way I already warned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit God’s Kingdom.

(2 Timothy 3:1-4) 3 But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,

Walk in it,” in case you should go to the right or in case you should go to the left.
(Psalms 1:1-3) 1 Happy is the man who does not walk according to the advice of the wicked And does not stand on the path of sinners And does not sit in the seat of scoffers. But his delight is in the law of Jehovah, And he reads His law in an undertone day and night. 3 He will be like a tree planted by streams of water, A tree that produces fruit in its season, The foliage of which does not wither. And everything he does will succeed.

(Malachi 2:14) And you say, ‘For what reason?’ It is because Jehovah has acted as a witness between you and the wife of your youth, with whom you have dealt treacherously, although she is your partner and your wife by covenant.
(Proverbs 31:10-31) 10 Who can find a capable wife? Her value is far more than that of corals. ב [Beth] 11 Her husband trusts her from his heart, And he lacks nothing of value. ג [Gimel] 12 She rewards him with good, not bad, All the days of her life. ד [Daleth] 13 She obtains wool and linen; She delights to work with her hands. ה [He] 14 She is like the ships of a merchant, Bringing her food in from afar. ו [Waw] 15 She also rises while it is still night, Providing food for her household And portions for her female servants. ז [Zayin] 16 She sets her mind on a field and buys it; She plants a vineyard from her own labors. ח [Heth] 17 She prepares herself for hard work, And she strengthens her arms. ט [Teth] 18 She sees that her trading is profitable; Her lamp does not go out at night. י [Yod] 19 Her hands seize the distaff, And her hands take hold of the spindle. כ [Kaph] 20 She extends her palm to the lowly one, And she opens her hands to the poor. ל [Lamed] 21 She does not worry about her household because of the snow, For her whole household is clothed in warm garments. מ [Mem] 22 She makes her own bed covers. Her clothing is of linen and purple wool. נ [Nun] 23 Her husband is well-known in the city gates, Where he sits among the elders of the land. ס [Samekh] 24 She makes and sells linen garments And supplies belts to the merchants. ע [Ayin] 25 She is clothed with strength and splendor, And she looks to the future with confidence. פ [Pe] 26 She opens her mouth in wisdom; The law of kindness is on her tongue. צ [Tsade] 27 She watches over the activity of her household, And the bread of laziness she does not eat. ק [Qoph] 28 Her children rise up and declare her happy; Her husband rises up and praises her. ר [Resh] 29 There are many capable women, But you—you surpass them all. ש [Shin] 30 Charm may be false, and beauty may be fleeting, But the woman who fears Jehovah will be praised. ת [Taw] 31 Give her the reward for what she does, And let her works praise her in the city gates.
(Ephesians 5:22) Let wives be in subjection to their husbands as to the Lord,

(Colossians 3:13) Continue putting up with one another and forgiving one another freely even if anyone has a cause for complaint against another. Just as Jehovah freely forgave you, you must also do the same.
(Micah 7:18, 19) Who is a God like you, Pardoning error and passing over the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? He will not hold onto his anger forever, For he delights in loyal love. 19 He will again show us mercy; he will conquer our errors. You will throw all their sins into the depths of the sea.

(1 Corinthians 13:4, 5) Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous. It does not brag, does not get puffed up, 5 does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury.
(1 Peter 4:8) Above all things, have intense love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.
(Matthew 18:21, 22) Then Peter came and said to him: “Lord, how many times is my brother to sin against me and am I to forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him: “I say to you, not up to seven times, but up to 77 times.
(Proverbs 10:12) Hatred is what stirs up contentions, But love covers over all transgressions.
