Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
He who corrects a mocker invites insult. He who reproves a wicked man invites abuse.
Penalties are prepared for scoffers, and beatings for the backs of fools.
The proud and haughty man, "scoffer" is his name; he works in the arrogance of pride.
For though Yahweh is high, yet he looks after the lowly; but the proud, he knows from afar.
For thus says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also who is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite.
But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
1 Peter 5:5
Likewise, you younger ones, be subject to the elder. Yes, all of you clothe yourselves with humility, to subject yourselves to one another; for "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
