Pride (Part 5)

Isaiah 23:8-9  Who has brought this disaster on Tyre, empire builder and chief trader of the world? The Lord Almighty has done it to destroy your pride and show his contempt for all human greatness.

Isaiah 25:10-12  … the Lord’s good hand will rest on Jerusalem. Moab will be crushed like trampled straw and left to rot. God will push down Moab’s people as a swimmer pushes down water with his hands. He will end their pride and all their evil works. The high walls of Moab will be demolished and ground to dust.

Isaiah 28:1-3,5  Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower which is at the head of the verdant valleys, to those who are overcome with wine! Behold, the Lord has a mighty and strong one, like a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, like a flood of mighty waters overflowing, Who will bring them down to the earth with His hand. The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, will be trampled underfoot; …  Then at last the Lord Almighty will himself be Israel’s crowning glory. He will be the pride and joy of the remnant of his people.

Jeremiah 13:9a,10,11,16,17  The Lord says: “These wicked people refuse to listen to Me. They stubbornly follow their own desires and worship idols. Therefore, they will become like this linen belt — good for nothing! As a belt clings to a person’s waist, so I created Judah and Israel to cling to Me, says the Lord. They were to be My people, My pride, My glory — an honor to My name. But they would not listen to Me. Give glory to the Lord your God before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness. But if you will not hear it, My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears, because the Lord’s flock has been taken captive.”

Jeremiah 48:28-30  You who dwell in Moab, leave the cities and dwell in the rock, and be like the dove which makes her nest in the sides of the cave’s mouth. We have heard the pride of Moab (he is exceedingly proud), of his loftiness and arrogance and pride, and of the haughtiness of his heart. I know his wrath, says the Lord, but it is not right; his lies have made nothing right.”

Jeremiah 49:14-16  I have heard a message from the Lord, and an ambassador has been sent to the nations: “Gather together, come against her, and rise up to battle! For indeed, I will make you small among nations, despised among men. Your fierceness has deceived you, the pride of your heart, oh you who dwell in the clefts of the rock, who hold the height of the hill! Though you make your nest as high as the eagle, I will bring you down from there,” says the Lord.
