Pride (Part 4)

Proverbs 29:23  A man’s pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor.

Ecclesiastes 7:7-9  Extortion turns wise people into fools, and bribes corrupt the heart. Finishing is better than starting. Patience is better than pride. Don’t be quick-tempered, for anger is the friend of fools.

Sirach 23:4-6  Lord, Father, God of my life, don’t let me have prideful eyes turn desire away from me. Don’t allow gluttony or sexual desire to overtake me, and don’t hand me over to a shameless spirit.

Isaiah 2:8-12,17,22  The land is filled with idols. The people bow down and worship these things they have made. So now everyone will be humbled and brought low. The Lord cannot simply ignore their sins! Crawl into caves in the rocks. Hide from the terror of the Lord and the glory of his majesty. The day is coming when your pride will be brought low and the Lord alone will be exalted. In that day the Lord Almighty will punish the proud, bringing them down to the dust.  The arrogance of all people will be brought low. Their pride will lie in the dust. The Lord alone will be exalted! Stop putting your trust in mere humans. They are as frail as breath. How can they be of help to anyone?

Isaiah 4:2  … in the future, Israel — the branch of the Lord — will be lush and beautiful, and the fruit of the land will be the pride of its people.

Isaiah 9:8-14  The Lord sent a word against Jacob, and it has fallen on Israel. All the people will know– Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria– who say in pride and arrogance of heart: “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with hewn stones; The sycamores are cut down, but we will replace them with cedars.” Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and spur his enemies on, The Syrians before and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with an open mouth. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still. For the people do not turn to Him who strikes them, nor do they seek the Lord of hosts. Therefore the Lord will cut off head and tail from Israel, palm branch and bulrush in one day.

Isaiah 13:19-20b  … Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride, will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It will never be inhabited, Nor will it be settled from generation to generation…

Isaiah 16:6  Is this Moab, the proud land we have heard so much about? Its pride and insolence are all gone now!
