jealousy. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, Exodus 20:5 (NIV).
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,
Exodus 20:5 (NIV)
I hope you will put up with a little of my foolishness; but you are already doing that. I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent\'s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:1-3 (NIV)
“Jealousy is a poison that I drink in the hope that the other person will die.”
“Resentment or discontent against a rival or against seeing another’s success or advantage.”
Proverbs 14:30 (NIV)
Jealousy is like a cancer
Proverbs 14:30 (TEV)
Anger is cruel and wrath is like a flood, but who can survive the destructiveness of jealousy.
Proverbs 27:4 (NLT)
If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.
James 3:14-16 NLT
“He answered one of them, ‘Friend, I haven’t been unfair! Didn’t you agree to work all day for the usual wage? Take your money and go. I wanted to pay this last worker the same as you. Is it against the law for me to do what I want with my money? Should you be jealous because I am kind to others?’
But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you
Luke 6:27-28 (NLT)
Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:21 (NIV)
Love does not envy!!!
1 Corinthians 13:4 (NIV)
