Pride and Humility
5 The LORD detests all the proud of heart.
Be sure of this: They will not go unpunished.
18 Pride goes before destruction,
a haughty spirit before a fall.
12 Before his downfall a man's heart is proud,
but humility comes before honor.
13 He who answers before listening—
that is his folly and his shame.
23 A poor man pleads for mercy,
but a rich man answers harshly.
24 The proud and arrogant man — "Mocker" is his name;
he behaves with overweening pride.
27 It is not good to eat too much honey,
nor is it honorable to seek one's own honor.
1 Do not boast about tomorrow,
for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;
someone else, and not your own lips.
21 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,
but man is tested by the praise he receives.
23 A man's pride brings him low,
but a man of lowly spirit gains honor.
