similarly Proverbs 1:7 declares, "The holy fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge (gnosis) …"

Bedouin: I would like to be the most just of people.
Prophet: Desire for others what you would like for yourself and you would be the most just of people.

"None of you truly believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself." - Islamic teaching in sacred hadith.

Bedouin: I would like to be the best of people.

Prophet: If you do not complain to any fellow humans you will be the most honorable of people.

"Don't complain about the snow on your neighbor's roof when your own doorstep is unclean." - Confucius

"See if you can catch yourself complaining in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation or accept it." - Eckhart Tolle, Power of Now.

Bedouin: I wish to be safe from Divine Wrath on the Day of Judgment.
Prophet: If you do not lose your temper with any of your fellow humans, you will be safe from Divine wrath on the Day of Judgment.

"Delusion arises from anger. The mind is negatively bewildered by delusion. Reasoning is destroyed when the mind is bewildered. One falls down when reasoning is destroyed.

Three gates of Hell are: lust, anger, and greed." - Bhagavad Gita

Bedouin: What are the worst evils in the sight of God?
Prophet: Uncontrolled bad temper and miserliness (i.e. selfishness with money).

"The honor of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own, and do not be easy to anger." - Rabbi Eliezer

St. John Climacus

"Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance." - St. Francis of Assisi

"And now abideth faith, hope and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" - I Corinthians 13:13.
