Psalm 138:6; Proverbs 3:34; Proverbs 29:23; Matthew 23:12; Luke 1:52; James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5

hFor though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly,

but the haughty he knows from afar.


34  Toward the cscorners he dis scornful,

ebut to the humble he gives favor.1


23  eOne's pride will bring him low,

fbut he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.


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


52  jhe has brought down the mighty from their thrones

land exalted those of humble estate;


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


Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. wClothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for xGod opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
