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.
Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him will I cut off: he that has a haughty look and a proud heart will I not endure.
The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the boundary of the widow.
A man's pride shall bring him low: but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.
For the day of the LORD of hosts shall come upon everyone that is proud and lofty, and upon everyone that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall 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, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that comes shall burn them up, says the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
He has put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
