Man’s Anger Does Not Promote the Righteousness of God

James 1:19-20, 26

Understand [this], my beloved brethren.

Let every man be quick to hear [a ready listener], slow to speak, slow to take offense and to get angry.

For man’s anger does not promote the righteousness God [wishes and requires].

If anyone thinks himself to be religious (piously observant of the external duties of his faith) and does not bridle his tongue but deludes his own heart, this person’s religious service is worthless (futile, barren).
