Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. It is better to be of a lowly spirit among the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud. - Prov. 16:18-19
One who loves transgression loves strife; one who builds a high threshold invites broken bones.
The wealth of the rich is their strong city; in their imagination it is like a high wall. Before destruction one’s heart is haughty, but humility goes before honor. - Proverbs 18:11-12
Many proclaim themselves loyal, but who can find one worthy of trust?
Haughty eyes and a proud heart - the lamp of the wicked - are sin.
The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is riches and honor and life.
Like clouds and wind without rain is one who boasts of a gift never given.
It is not good to eat much honey, or to seek honor on top of honor.
Do you see persons wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for fools than for them.
The lazy person is wiser in self-esteem than seven who can answer discreetly.
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. Let another praise you, and not your own mouth a stranger, and not your own lips. - Prov. 27:1-2
The rich is wise in self-esteem, but an intelligent poor person sees through the pose.
The greedy person stirs up strife, but whoever trusts in the LORD will be enriched.
A person’s pride will bring humiliation, but one who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.
There are those who are pure in their own eyes yet are not cleansed of their filthiness. There are those - how lofty are their eyes, how high their eyelids lift! - Proverbs 30:12-13
If you have been foolish, exalting yourself, or if you have been devising evil, put your hand on your mouth.
