Bible verses about "jealousy and envy" | Moffatt

Romans 13:13

13 let us live decorously as in the open light of day — no revelry or bouts of drinking, no debauchery or sensuality, no quarrelling or jealousy.

1 John 4:8

8 he who does not love, does not know God, for God is love.

James 4:7

7 Well then, submit yourselves to God; resist the devil, and he will fly from you:

1 Corinthians 3:3

3 you are still worldly. For with jealousy and quarrels in your midst, are you not worldly, are you not behaving like ordinary men?

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 Thus, I may speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but if I have no love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal; 2 I may prophesy, fathom all mysteries and secret lore, I may have such absolute faith that I can move hills from their place, but if I have no love, I count for nothing; 3 I may distribute all I possess in charity, I may give up my body to be burnt, but if I have no love, I make nothing of it. 4 Love is very patient, very kind. Love knows no jealousy; love makes no parade, gives itself no airs, 5 is never rude, never selfish, never irritated, never resentful; 6 love is never glad when others go wrong, love is gladdened by goodness, 7 always slow to expose, always eager to believe the best, always hopeful, always patient. 8 Love never disappears. As for prophesying, it will be superseded; as for 'tongues,' they will cease; as for knowledge, it will be superseded. 9 For we only know bit by bit, and we only prophesy bit by bit; 10 but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will be superseded. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I argued like a child; now that I am a man, I am done with childish ways. 12 At present we only see the baffling reflections in a mirror, but then it will be face to face; at present I am learning bit by bit, but then I shall understand, as all along I have myself been understood. 13 Thus 'faith and hope and love last on, these three,' but the greatest of all is love.

Galatians 5:19-21

19 Now the deeds of the flesh are quite obvious, such as sexual vice, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, magic, quarrels, dissension, jealousy, temper, rivalry, factions, party-spirit, 21 envy, [murder], drinking bouts, revelry, and the like; I tell you beforehand as I have told you already, that people who indulge in such practices will never inherit the Realm of God.

1 Corinthians 13:4

4 Love is very patient, very kind. Love knows no jealousy; love makes no parade, gives itself no airs,

James 3:16

16 for wherever jealousy and rivalry exist, there disorder reigns and every evil.

Philippians 2:3

3 never acting for private ends or from vanity, but humbly considering each other the better man,

James 3:14-16

14 But if you are cherishing bitter jealousy and rivalry in your hearts, do not pride yourselves on that — and be false to the truth. 15 That is not the wisdom which comes down from above, it is an earthly wisdom, sensuous, devilish; 16 for wherever jealousy and rivalry exist, there disorder reigns and every evil.
