The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
"For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being," declares the LORD. "But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.
You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.
