me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren.

them, See that ye fall not out by the way.

ROM 2:8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey
unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
ROM 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all
ROM 13:13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness,
not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
ROM 14:1 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful
ROM 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and
things wherewith one may edify another.
ROM 14:21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing
whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.
ROM 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and
offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
ROM 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own
belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
1CO 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but
that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
1CO 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which
are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
1CO 1:12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of
Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
1CO 1:13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in
the name of Paul?
1CO 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as
unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
1CO 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and
strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
1CO 3:4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye
1CO 4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself
and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men
above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against
1CO 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that
thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if
thou hadst not received it?
1CO 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the
unjust, and not before the saints?
1CO 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world
shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
1CO 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that
pertain to this life?
1CO 6:4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them
to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
1CO 6:5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among
you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
1CO 6:6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
1CO 6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law
one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer
yourselves to be defrauded?
1CO 11:16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom,
neither the churches of God.
1CO 11:17 Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come
together not for the better, but for the worse.
1CO 11:18 For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that
there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.
1CO 11:19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are
approved may be made manifest among you.
2CO 12:20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would,
and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates,
envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:
GAL 5:10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none
otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever
GAL 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not
consumed one of another.
GAL 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery,
fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
GAL 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife,
PHI 1:15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of
PHI 1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add
affliction to my bonds:
PHI 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of
mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
PHI 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
PHI 2:15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without
rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as
lights in the world;
1TI 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a
good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
1TI 1:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
1TI 1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they
say, nor whereof they affirm.
1TI 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands,
without wrath and doubting.
1TI 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant,
sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
1TI 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient,
not a brawler, not covetous;
1TI 6:3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even
the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to
1TI 6:4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of
words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
1TI 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the
truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
1TI 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane
and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
1TI 6:21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with
2TI 2:14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord
that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the
2TI 2:23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender
2TI 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all
men, apt to teach, patient,
2TI 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God
peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
TIT 3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey
magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
TIT 3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all
meekness unto all men.
TIT 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived,
serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and
hating one another.
TIT 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and
strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
JAM 3:14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not,
and lie not against the truth.
JAM 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual,
JAM 3:16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil
JAM 4:1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence,
even of your lusts that war in your members?
JAM 4:2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain:
ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
