indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead;
And He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt:
"When I say to the righteous he will surely live, and he so trusts in his righteousness that he commits iniquity, none of his righteous deeds will be remembered; but in that same iniquity of his which he has committed he will die.
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.
"But you trusted in your beauty and played the harlot because of your fame, and you poured out your harlotries on every passer-by who might be willing.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
