Pride (Scriptures containing "a" or "a few" specific words/thoughts)


    Pride, proud, arrogant


Job 33:17            because the pride of evil men


Why do you contend with Him?  For He does not give an accounting of any of His words.  For God may speak in one way , or in another,  yet man does not perceive it.  In a dream, in a  vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds,  then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction. In order to turn man from his deed, and conceal pride from man,  He keeps back his soul from the Pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

All the words of my mouth are with righteousness;  Nothing crooked or perverse is in them.  They are all plain to him who understands, And right to those who find knowledge.  Receive my instruction, and not silver,  and knowledge rather than choice gold;  For wisdom is better than rubies, And all the things one may desire can not be compared with her.  "I wisdom dwell with prudence,  and find out knowledge and discretion.  The fear of the Lord is to hate evil;  Pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth, I hate. Council is mine and sound wisdom;  I am understanding, I have strength.  By me kings reign, and rulers decree justice.  By me princes rule, and nobles, All the judges of the earth.  I love those who love me,  and those who seek me diligently will find me.

"Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ' This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.  and in vain they worship me Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." "For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men- the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do." He said to them, "All too well you reject the commandment of God, that  you may keep your tradition."  For Moses said  'Honor your father and your mother'; and,'He who curses father or mother, let him be put death.'  "But you say, 'If a man says to his father or mother, "Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corbain"-'(that is , a gift to God), Then you no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother,  making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down.  and many such things you do."  When He had called all the multitude to Himself, He said to them," Hear me every one, and understand: "There is nothing that enters a man from the outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.  "If anyone has ears to hear let him hear!"  When He had entered a house away from the crowd, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable.  So he said to them,"Are you thus without understanding also?  Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, "because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?" And He said "what comes out of a man, that defiles a man.  For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, and evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.  All these evil things come from within and defile a man"

James 4:6                     he saith God resisteth the proud


The spirit that dwells in us yearns jealously"  But he gives more grace.  Therefore He says:  " God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."  therefore submit to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee form you.  Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.  Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double minded.  Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.  Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
