Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
1 Peter 4:1
Since then Christ has with respect to his mortal nature died for us, arm yourselves with this reflection, that he, who is dead with respect to sensuality, has renounced sin;
in brotherly kindness be passionately affected to one another; in honour prefer one another:
Be mutually obsequious with christian respect.
Do nothing out of a spirit of contention, or for vain-glory, but modestly look upon others as if they were better than yourselves.
1 Peter 3:3

but imitate the Lord Jesus Christ, and by no means indulge any sensual desires.
be you therefore adorn'd with a compassionate temper, with benevolence, humility, meekness, patience as becometh saints and chosen favourites of God:
on the contrary, he heaps his favours upon you. wherefore 'tis said, "God defeats the proud, but is gracious to the humble."
for whosoever exalts himself, shall be abased; and he that humbles himself, shall be exalted.
so when you have done all that you were commanded to do, say, we are unprofitable servants; we have only done what was our duty to do.
Now there had been a dispute among the disciples, which of them should be accounted the greatest.
