For whosoever exalts himself shall be abased, and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.
Whosoever secretly slanders his neighbour, I will cut off; he that has a high look and a proud heart I will not suffer.
The LORD will destroy the house of the proud, but he will establish the inheritance of the widow.
A man's pride shall bring him low, but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
For the day of the LORD of the hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
And the proud one shall stumble and fall and have no one to raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
For, behold, the day comes that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, and all that do wickedly shall be stubble; and the day that comes shall burn them up, said the LORD of the hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
He has put down the mighty from their thrones and exalted the humble.
