Before downfall the heart of man becometh haughty, and before honor goeth humility.
And if my people, over whom my name is called, do then humble themselves, and pray, and seek my presence, and turn away from their evil ways: then will I also hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
He hath told thee, O man, what is good; and what the Lord doth require of thee: nothing but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with thy God.
The reward of humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor, and life.
The pride of a man will humble him; but the humble in spirit will attain to honor.
The fear of the Lord is the correction for wisdom; and before honor there must come humility.
Good and upright is the Lord: therefore he pointeth out to sinners the right way.
He guideth the meek in justice, and he teacheth the meek his way.
When pride cometh, then cometh disgrace; but with the modest there is wisdom.
