Scriptures About Narcissism

“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.  You show love to thousands but bring the punishment for the fathers’ sins into the laps of their children after them. O great and powerful God, whose name is the LORD Almighty, great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to all the ways of men; you reward everyone according to his conduct and as his deeds deserve.”  Jeremiah 32:17-19

“A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing. There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord…” Proverbs 6:12-19

“The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.  Men of perverse heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with evil.  Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret, him will I put to silence; whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, him I will not endure.”  Psalms 101:4-5

“Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.”  Titus 3:10-11

“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry: the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.” Psalm 34:15-16

“But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death. All men will hate you because of me. But not a hair of your head will perish. By standing firm you will gain life.” Luke 21:14-19

“Do not give to dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs.  If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.”  Matthew 7:6

“A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud…”  2 Peter 2: 22

“They have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me.  Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long.  But the Lord is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.”  Psalm 129:2-4

“When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you will surely die’, and you do not speak out to dissuade him from his ways, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you do warn the wicked man to turn from his ways and he does not do so, he will die for his sin, but you will have saved yourself.” Ezekiel 33:8-9

“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thorn bushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart, his mouth speaks.” Luke 6:43-45

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up…get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.  Be kind and compassionate to one another…”  From Ephesian 4:29-32

“All of you, clothe yourselves in humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.  Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.”  1 Peter 5:5b-6

“If you have any encouragement from being united in Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.” Philippians 2:1-3

  1. Thank you for sharing God’s word on this very important topic for the church. Narcissistics are particularly dangerous when in the role of spouses, parents or church leaders.

    • I’m recently divorced from one. Please get away to somewhere safe. They do NOT care about you and I’ll hurt you if they think you’ll ruin their image. God will take care of you and your babies. ❤️

    I have shared on Facebook growing up with an NPD mother. I used to say to my therapist, in my young adult years, that I had married my mother but I did not understand why I felt my husband was just like my mother. He was emotionally unavailable and distant and was extremely critical and would rage at drivers in traffic. He would rehearse to me a litany of things he thought I had done wrong. It was a lovelesa marriage. We divorced after 5 years of marriage. In the second year of marriage, I gave birth to a precious baby girl. I loved her so much and was grateful to have had the privilege of being to an innocent child the mother I never had. I took classes at a parenting center on how to be a democratic parent and entered long term therapy to heal from childhood neglect and abandonment by my mother and the sexual abuse and rape by my father, a sociopath and a Methodist minister. Iwas so hapoy when I entered college and got away from my parwnts Unfortunately, my daughter began to exhibit the NPD traits in her adulthood to such an extent that her behavior became worse as she aged and had become so toxic to me that I have had to sever ties with her for my own sanity and safety. One example of her behavior: .She became an exevutive earning over $10,000/month while I have been retirwd and living on social security but extorted money from me by crying and begging for more miney claiming she could not payba contractor fir work she had done on her house Her father used me to have his child and then abandoned us both to pursuw his career. He told her when she was 5 that he knew one day sge would leave him so he was leaving her first. Cold hearted being without any concern for how his behaviir affwcted his daughtee. Today I am frew of them both and happily retired and luving in a sr independent livibg comnynity with new friebds and peace if mind. I gave my own homevat last though it has taken me 70 years to find it.

  6. Thank you


  7. This was such a blessing to me. I’ve been dealing with someone who is very manipulative, domineering and so uncaring. And have prayed and cried because I really care for him, so it helps to know how and what to do
