|Prov. 3:34 |
34 Surely He scorns the scornful, but gives grace to the humble.
16 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood . . .
13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate.
2 When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom.
10 By pride comes nothing but strife, but with the well-advised is wisdom.
3 In the mouth of a fool is a rod of pride, but the lips of the wise will preserve them.
25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud, but He will establish the boundary of the widow.
33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility.
5 Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished.
|Prov. 16:18-19 |
18 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. 19 Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
19 He who loves transgression loves strife, and he who exalts his gate seeks destruction.
11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and like a high wall in his own esteem. 12 Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, and before honor is humility.
6 Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man?
4 A haughty look, a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked are sin.
22 A wise man scales the city of the mighty, and brings down the trusted stronghold.
4 By humility and the fear of the LORD Are riches and honor and life.
14 Whoever falsely boasts of giving is like clouds and wind without rain.
27 It is not good to eat much honey; So to seek one's own glory is not glory.
12 Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
16 The lazy man is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can answer sensibly.
1 Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth. 2 Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.
11 The rich man is wise in his own eyes, but the poor who has understanding searches him out.
25 He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, but he who trusts in the LORD will be prospered.
23 A man's pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor.
12 There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, Yet is not washed from its filthiness. 13 There is a generation - oh, how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
32 If you have been foolish in exalting yourself, or if you have devised evil, put your hand on your mouth.
