For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
Answer a fool as his folly deserves,
That he not be wise in his own eyes.
Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
And clever in their own sight!
Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.
If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know;
Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Or you will also be like him. Answer a fool as his folly deserves, That he not be wise in his own eyes.
