About wrath and anger

“Wrath and anger—
these also are detestable,
    and they will possess the sinful person.” (Syrach 27:30 )

“Be mindful of the end that awaits you,
and put an end to enmity;
    be mindful of decay and death,
    and be faithful to the commandments.
Be mindful of the commandments,
and don’t be irate at your neighbor;
    be mindful of the covenant of the
    Most High, and overlook a mistake.”  (Syrach 28:7-8 )

About forgiving

Then Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, how many times should I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Should I forgive as many as seven times?  Jesus said, “Not just seven times, but rather as many as seventy-seven times ( Matthew 18:21-22 )

About enemies

“You have heard that it was said, You must love your  neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say to you “love your enemies and pray for those who harass you”  ( Matthew 5:43-44 )
