If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
The Lord‘s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the dwelling of the righteous. Toward the scorners he is scornful, but to the humble he gives favor.
Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.
Better to be lowly and have a servant than to play the great man and lack bread.
