for every one that exalts himself shall be abased, and he that abases himself shall be exalted.
Look on every one that is proud, bring him low, and tread down the wicked in their place:
Whoso secretly slandereth his neighbour, him will I destroy; him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer.
Jehovah plucketh up the house of the proud; but he establisheth the boundary of the widow.
A man's pride bringeth him low; but the humble in spirit shall obtain honour.
For there shall be a day of Jehovah of hosts upon everything proud and lofty, and upon everything lifted up, and it shall be brought low;
and the proud one shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up; yea, I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all that are round about him.
For behold, the day cometh, burning as a furnace; and all the proud and all that work wickedness shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith Jehovah of hosts, so that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
He has put down rulers from thrones, and exalted the lowly.
