Pride goes before destruction

Post  thirsty on Mon 14 Apr 2008, 12:47 am

Pride goes before destruction,
a haughty spirit before a fall.
Better to be lowly in spirit
and among the oppressed
than to share plunder with the proud.
Proverbs 16:18-19 KJV
______________

Your heart became proud on account of your beauty,
and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor
Ezekiel 28:17 NIV
______________

He may be puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil;
1 Timothy 3:6 RSV
______________

Clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,
1 Peter 5:5,6 NASB
