For see, the day is coming, it is burning like an oven; all the men of pride and all who do evil will be dry stems of grass: and in the day which is coming they will be burned up, says the Lord of armies, till they have not a root or a branch.
Happy is the man who has faith in the Lord, and does not give honour to the men of pride or to those who are turned away to deceit.
Though the Lord is high, he sees those who are low; and he has knowledge from far off of those who are lifted up.
He has an over-high opinion of himself; being without knowledge, having only an unhealthy love of questionings and wars of words, from which come envy, fighting, cruel words, evil thoughts,
But he gives more grace. So that the Writings say, God is against the men of pride, but he gives grace to those who make themselves low before him.
The men of pride, who are turned away from your law, have put nets for me.
Let the men of pride be shamed; because they have falsely given decision against me; but I will give thought to your orders.
And now to us the men of pride seem happy; yes, the evil-doers are doing well; they put God to the test and are safe.
