Bible verses about "quarrelsome" | NHEB

1 Timothy 3:1-16

1 This is a faithful saying: If someone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a good work. 2 The overseer therefore must be without reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sensible, modest, hospitable, good at teaching; 3 not a drunkard, not violent, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money; 4 one who rules his own house well, having children in subjection with all reverence; 5 (but if someone does not know how to manage his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?) 6 not a new convert, lest being puffed up he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. 7 Moreover he must have good testimony from those who are outside, to avoid falling into reproach and the snare of the devil. 8 Deacons, in the same way, must be reverent, not double-tongued, not devoted to a lot of wine, not greedy for money; 9 holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. 10 Let them also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, if they are blamesless. 11 Their wives in the same way must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons be husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. 13 For those who have served well as deacons gain for themselves a good standing, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus. 14 These things I write to you, hoping to come to you shortly; 15 but if I wait long, that you may know how people ought to behave themselves in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16 Without controversy, the mystery of godliness is great: He was revealed in the flesh, justified by the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world, and received up in glory.

Ephesians 5:22-33

22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, and Christ also is the head of the church, being himself the savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their own husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for it; 26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, 27 that he might present the church to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 Even so husbands also ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as Christ also does the church; 30 because we are members of his body, of his flesh and of his bones. 31 "For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and will be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." 32 This mystery is great, but I speak concerning Christ and of the church. 33 Nevertheless each of you must also love his own wife even as himself; and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Proverbs 27:15

Proverbs 25:24

James 4:1

1 Where do conflicts and quarrels among you come from? Do they not come from your passions that war in your members?

2 Timothy 2:24-26

24 The Lord's servant must not quarrel, but be gentle towards all, able to teach, patient, 25 in gentleness correcting those who oppose him: perhaps God may give them repentance leading to a full knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may recover themselves out of the devil's snare, having been taken captive by him to his will.

Proverbs 21:19

19 It is better to dwell in a desert land, than with a contentious and fretful woman.
