Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Proverbs 16:18

 

Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

James 4:6

 

“Take care lest you forget the LORD your God by not keeping his commandments and his rules and his statutes, which I command you today,

Deuteronomy 8:11

 

lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, who led you through the great and terrifying wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, who brought you water out of the flinty rock, who fed you in the wilderness with manna that your fathers did not know, that he might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end.

Deuteronomy 8:12-16

 

Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’ You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day. And if you forget the LORD your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish. Like the nations that the LORD makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD your God.

Deuteronomy 8:17-20

 

“Scoffer” is the name of the arrogant, haughty man who acts with arrogant pride.

Proverbs 21:24

 

The devising of folly is sin, and the scoffer is an abomination to mankind.

Proverbs 24:9

 

“no one seeks for God.”

Romans 3:11

 

Whoever corrects a scoffer gets himself abuse, and he who reproves a wicked man incurs injury.

Proverbs 9:7

 

By insolence comes nothing but strife, but with those who take advice is wisdom.

Proverbs 13:10

 

“How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge?

Proverbs 1:22

 

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.

Proverbs 11:2

 

Condemnation is ready for scoffers, and beating for the backs of fools.

Proverbs 19:29

 

One’s pride will bring him low,

Proverbs 29:23

 

But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.

James 4:6-10

 

Toward the scorners he is scornful, but to the humble he gives favor.

Proverbs 3:34

 

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
