Proverbs 15:33; Proverbs 18:12; Proverbs 22:4; Proverbs 29:23

33  jThe fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom,

and khumility comes before honor.

12  mBefore destruction a man’s heart is haughty,

but nhumility comes before honor.

The reward for humility and fear of the Lord

is triches and honor and life.1

23  eOne’s pride will bring him low,

fbut he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.
