This is what the Lord says:The wise man must not boast in his wisdom;
the strong man must not boast in his strength;
the wealthy man must not boast in his wealth.
For the land is full of adulterers;
the land mourns because of the curse,
and the grazing lands in the wilderness have dried up.
Their way of life has become evil,
and their power is not rightly used
2 Samuel 1:19
The splendor of Israel lies slain on your heights.
How the mighty have fallen!
2 Samuel 1:25
How the mighty have fallen in the thick of battle!
Jonathan lies slain on your heights.
2 Samuel 1:27
How the mighty have fallen
and the weapons of war have perished!
Nations will see and be ashamed
of all their power.
They will put their hands over their mouths,
and their ears will become deaf.
1 Corinthians 4:19
But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will know not the talk but the power of those who are inflated with pride.
