16 There are dsix things that the Lord hates,
dseven that are an abomination to him:
and ghands that shed innocent blood,
18 ha heart that devises wicked plans,
ifeet that make haste to run to evil,
and one who asows discord among brothers.
2 cWhen pride comes, then comes disgrace,
but with dthe humble is wisdom.
9 Better to be lowly and have a servant
than to play the great man and lack bread.
10 fBy insolence comes nothing but strife,
but with those who take advice is wisdom.
25 The Lord tears down the house of qthe proud
33 jThe fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom,
and khumility comes before honor.
5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is ran abomination to the Lord;
sbe assured, he will not go unpunished.
18 mPride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 nIt is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor
than to odivide the spoil with the proud.
12 mBefore destruction a man’s heart is haughty,
but nhumility comes before honor.
10 nIt is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury,
much less for oa slave to rule over princes.
9 nWho can say, “I have made my heart pure;
I am clean from my sin”?
4 cHaughty eyes and a proud heart,
24 f“Scoffer” is the name of the arrogant, haughty man
who acts with arrogant pride.
4 The reward for humility and fear of the Lord
27 It is qnot good to eat much honey,
16 The sluggard is jwiser in his own eyes
nthan seven men who can answer sensibly.
2 Let zanother praise you, and not your own mouth;
a stranger, and not your own lips.
21 wThe crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold,
and a man is tested by his praise.
23 eOne’s pride will bring him low,
fbut he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.
