"Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty and before honor is humility. He who answers a matter before he hears it, It is folly and shame to him." Proverbs 18:12-13 "The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, The haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, And the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the Lord of hosts Shall come upon everything proud and lofty, Upon everything lifted up And it shall be brought low" Isaiah 2:11-12
"Better is a dry morsel with quietness, than a house full of feasting with strife." "An evildoer gives heed to false lips; A liar listens eagerly to a spiteful tongue." "He who mocks the poor reproaches his Maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished." Proverbs 17:1; 4-5 That I may know Jesus and the power of His resurrection and fellowship of His sufferings.
"Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the spoil with the proud. He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he. The wise in heart will be called prudent, And sweetness of the lips increases learning.

The lips of the wise disperse knowledge, But the heart of the fool does not do so. The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, But the prayer of the upright is His delight. The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, But He loves him who follows righteousness. Harsh discipline is for him who forsakes the way, And he who hates correction will die. Hell and Destruction are before the Lord; So how much more the hearts of the sons of men. A scoffer does not love [...]
The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish pulls it down with her hands. He who walks in his uprightness fears the Lord, But he who is perverse in his ways despises Him. In the mouth of a fool is a rod of pride, But the lips of the wise will preserve them. Where no oxen are, the trough is clean; But much increase comes by the strength of an ox. A faithful witness does not lie, But a false witness will utter lies. A scoffer seeks wisdom and does not find it, But knowledge is easy to him who understands.
