Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.
A fool’s wrath is presently known: but a prudent man covereth shame.
When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.
Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
