I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “contention”.

Pro 13:10 Only by pride cometh contention:
but with the well advised is wisdom.

Pro 17:14 The beginning of strife is
as when one letteth out water:
therefore leave off contention,
before it be meddled with.

Pro 18:6 A fool’s lips enter into contention,
and his mouth calleth for strokes.

Pro 18:18 The lot causeth contentions to cease,
and parteth between the mighty.

Pro 18:19 A brother offended is
harder to be won than a strong city:
and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

Pro 19:13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father:
and the contentions of a wife
are a continual dropping.

Pro 22:10 Cast out the scorner,
and contention shall go out;
yea, strife and reproach shall cease.

Pro 23:29 Who hath woe?
who hath sorrow?
who hath contentions?
who hath babbling?
who hath wounds without cause?
who hath redness of eyes?

Jer 15:10 Woe is me, my mother,
that thou hast borne me a man of strife
and a man of contention to the whole earth!
I have neither lent on usury,
nor men have lent to me on usury;
yet every one of them doth curse me.

Hab 1:3 Why dost thou shew me iniquity,
and cause me to behold grievance?
for spoiling and violence are before me:
and there are that raise up strife and contention.

Act 15:39 And the contention was so sharp between them,
that they departed asunder one from the other:
and so Barnabas took Mark,
and sailed unto Cyprus;

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.

Phi 1:16 The one preach Christ of contention,
not sincerely,
supposing to add affliction to my bonds:

1Th 2:2 But even after that we had suffered before,
and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi,
we were bold in our God to speak unto you
the gospel of God with much contention.

Tit 3:9 But avoid foolish questions,
and genealogies,
and contentions,
and strivings about the law;
for they are unprofitable and vain.
