2 Samuel 22:28
You rescue an afflicted people,
but Your eyes are set against the proud—
You humble them.
For You rescue an afflicted people,
but You humble those with haughty eyes.
A person’s pride will humble him,
but a humble spirit will gain honor.
for it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here!”
than to demote you in plain view of a noble.
You will be brought down;
you will speak from the ground,
and your words will come from low in the dust.
Your voice will be like that of a spirit from the ground;
your speech will whisper from the dust.
A wise heart accepts commands,
but foolish lips will be destroyed.
A sly wink of the eye causes grief,
and foolish lips will be destroyed.
then I will bring you down to be with those who descend to the Pit, to the people of antiquity. I will make you dwell in the underworld like the ancient ruins, with those who descend to the Pit, so that you will no longer be inhabited or display your splendor in the land of the living.
As they are going, I will spread My net over them;
I will bring them down like birds of the sky.
I will discipline them in accordance
with the news that reaches their assembly.
The Lord helps the afflicted
but brings the wicked to the ground.
God, You will bring them down
to the Pit of destruction;
men of bloodshed and treachery
will not live out half their days.
But I will trust in You.
for God is the Judge:
He brings down one and exalts another.
You pushed me hard to make me fall,
but the Lord helped me.
But you will be brought down to Sheol
into the deepest regions of the Pit.
But the righteousness that comes from faith speaks like this: Do not say in your heart, “Who will go up to heaven?” that is, to bring Christ down
And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? You will go down to Hades. For if the miracles that were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until today.
He has toppled the mighty from their thrones
and exalted the lowly.
