Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of the heavens.
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
LORD, my heart has not become haughty, nor mine eyes lofty; neither have I walked in grandeur, nor in wonderful things above and beyond that which pertains to me.
For thus has said the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is The Holy One; I dwell in the high place and in holiness and with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit to cause the spirit of the humble to live and to cause the heart of the contrite ones to live.
At the same time the disciples came unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of the heavens?
But it shall not be so among you, but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;
But it shall not be like this among you, for whosoever desires to make himself great among you shall be your servant;
and said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receives me, and whosoever shall receive me receives him that sent me; for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
For whosoever exalts himself shall be abased, and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Likewise, young people, be subject to the elders in such a manner that you are all subject to one another. Be clothed with humility of will, for God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.
