'Selfish' in the Bible

One who isolates himself pursues selfish desires;he rebels against all sound judgment.

For I fear that perhaps when I come I will not find you to be what I want, and I may not be found by you to be what you want;[a] there may be quarreling,(A) jealousy,(B) outbursts of anger, selfish ambitions,(C) slander,(D) gossip, arrogance, and disorder.(E)

But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t brag and deny the truth.
