Proverbs 21:24, 15:12, 26:12, 11:2, 16:18, 29:23, 18:12, 16:5, 16:33, 22:4, 13:10
“Scoffer” is the name of the arrogant, haughty man who acts with arrogant pride. … A scoffer does not like to be reproved; he will not go to the wise. … Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him. … When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. … Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. … One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor. … Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor. … Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the LORD; be assured, he will not go unpunished. … The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the LORD. … The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is riches and honor and life. … By insolence comes nothing but strife, but with those who take advice is wisdom.
