21 For from within, out of the hearts of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, [The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked...Jer 17:9]
22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lack of restraint, an evil eye [envy], blasphemy, pride, and foolishness. [..for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth...Gen 8:21]
|1 Corinthians 13:4-5|
5 Does not behave itself unseemly, is not self-seeking, is not angry,2 keeps no record of wrongs; [love is not self-seeking, does not insist on its own way, nor seek its own pleasure, nor is love possessive; but instead defers to others as long as what they prefer is not immoral, dangerous, or of major consequence.],
18 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
23 A man's pride shall bring him low, but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.
16 These six things that the LORD hates; yes, seven are an abomination to him: [What the Lord hates will certainly be banned from heaven.]
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that imagines immoral plans, feet that are swift to run to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies, and he who sows discord among brothers.3
2 When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the lowly is wisdom.
13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil. I hate pride, arrogance, the evil way, and deceitfulness.
3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride, but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
|1 John 2:16|
16 For everything by the world — the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eye, and the boastful pride of life (or possessions) — is not by the Father, but exists by the world. [For what your flesh and eye desires, and your pride of your life, comes not from the Creator, but comes from the system of the world, ruled by the god of this world, Satan. Whatever you covet is idolatry. Desires (lusts) of the flesh and of the eye are covetousness, which is not even to be named once among true Christians, Eph 5:3,5; and pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Pro 6:18. From the Word of the Lord within: "Pride can be stating how much you paid for something. So repent out of this foolishness."]
12 There they cry, but He does not answer them because of the pride of evil men.1
8 Now if we [our selfish nature of lusts and pride — sin], have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him.
|Ezekiel 16:49 |
49 Behold, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: pride, overabundance of food, and much idleness1 were hers and her daughters; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
