Passage: Proverbs 11:12
10 By insolence comes nothing but strife, but with those who take advice is wisdom.
Proverbs 15.25, 33
25 The Lord tears down the house of the proud but maintains the widow's boundaries.
33 The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom, and humility comes before honor.
Proverbs 16.5, 18-19
5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.
18 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud.
6 Do not put yourself forward in the king's presence or stand in the place of the great,
7 for it is better to be told, “Come up here,”
than to be put lower in the presence of a noble.
23 One's pride will bring him low,
but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.
11 There are those who curse their fathers and do not bless their mothers.
12 There are those who are clean in their own eyes but are not washed of their filth.
13 There are those—how lofty are their eyes, how high their eyelids lift!
14 There are those whose teeth are swords, whose fangs are knives,
to devour the poor from off the earth, the needy from among mankind.
