Proverbs 17:19; 2 Samuel 22:28; Matthew 23:12; James 4:6; Proverbs 11:2

19  Whoever loves transgression loves strife;

he who lmakes his door high seeks destruction.

28  iYou save a humble people,

jbut your eyes are on the haughty to bring them down.

12 mWhoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

But dhe gives more grace. Therefore it says, eGod opposes the proud but dgives grace to the humble.

cWhen pride comes, then comes disgrace,

but with dthe humble is wisdom.
