O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.
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.
For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.
When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.
Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
