For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread.
Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger.
For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
