29:23 Pride ends in humiliation,while humility brings honor.
29:5 To flatter friendsis to lay a trap for their feet.
Phil. 2:3 Don't be selfish; don't try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. 4 Don't look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. 5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.6 Though he was God,he did not think of equality with Godas something to cling to.7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges;he took the humble position of a slaveand was born as a human being.When he appeared in human form,8 he humbled himself in obedience to Godand died a criminal's death on a cross.
James 4:6 But he gives us even more grace to stand against such evil desires. As the Scriptures say,"God opposes the proudbut favors the humble."7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Eph. 2:8 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9 Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.
