Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Hebrews 13:5-6

But godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Timothy 6:6

It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman. Prov 21:19

A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike Prov 27:15

...the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Romans 2:8-9
