Bible Quotes
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
(Genesis 2:24) ESV

When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.
(Psalm 34:17-20) ESV

A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed. The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feed on folly.
(Proverbs 15:13,14) ESV

A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
(Proverbs 15:18) ESV

A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.
(Proverbs 29:11) ESV

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
(Isaiah 53:4) ESV

And behold, they cried out, “What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?”
(Matthew 8:29) ESV

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
(Ephesians 6:4) ESV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians 4:6,7) ESV

Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.
(1 Timothy 2:11-15) ESV

You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!
(James 2:19) ESV1

Emotions and the Bible

Many people wonder what the Bible has to say about emotions. While neither the word "emotion" nor "emotions" appears in the Bible, the Bible does however address many other specific emotions. God made mankind in His own image, so we experience emotions, just as God Himself experiences emotions. Emotions are said to be neither "good" nor "bad," but the behaviors that arise from them can be either positive or sinful. 

Although the word "emotion" does not appear in the Bible, many specific emotions are included in the Bible. The word "anger" is mentioned 270 times in the Bible. The word "joy" is mentioned 242 times. Other emotions are also mentioned. For example, "grief" is mentioned 35 times, "mourning" is mentioned 47 times, and "mourn" is mentioned 138 times. "Sadness" is only mentioned once and "frightened" is only mentioned 9 times. Where as "Terror" is mentioned 88 times. The Bible discusses multiple emotions as part of the human experience.


Many people mistakenly believe that anger is a sin. However, the Bible never refers to experiencing the emotion of anger as sinful. In Ephesians 4:26, the Bible says, "In your anger, do not sin," which implies that it is one's reaction to anger that has the potential to be sinful, not the anger itself. In fact, God Himself experiences anger. See Exodus 4:14, Leviticus 26:28, and Numbers 11:33 for a few examples. The Bible frequently describes God as "slow to anger" (Psalm 103:8), and we should follow His example.


God cares about our emotions. The Bible says in Psalm 34:18 that God is close to the brokenhearted. When Jesus first announced his "job description" in Luke 4:16-20, he quoted Isaiah 61:1, which says that God sent Jesus to "Bind up the brokenhearted." David frequently expressed his emotions in the Psalms, and David was known as the man after God's own heart. God Himself experiences emotions, from anger (Exodus 4:14) to pleasure (I Chronicles 29:17).


Expressing our emotions makes room for God's healing power. We need to pour out our pain so we have room to experience God's presence. David did this frequently throughout the Psalms, and he was known as the man after God's own heart. Job also poured out his emotions, and God never criticized him for how he was feeling. Jesus wept (John 11:35), even to the point of sweating blood before the crucifixion (Luke 22:44). Expressing our emotions is healthy.


The Bible encourages us to put more energy into our positive emotions than our negative ones. In Colossians 3:8, the Bible encourages us to rid ourselves of anger and other negative emotions. Instead, the Bible encourages us in Philippians 4:8 to think about "whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable---if anything is excellent or praiseworthy." Emotions are fleeting, but we can choose how we direct our energy. Instead of nursing our bitterness, we find freedom in choosing to think about things that are good.2
