Proverbs 3:34Cross Reference: James 4:6, 1 Peter 5:5-7
Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
Proverbs 8:13If you don't hate evil then you don't really fear the Lord. Jesus hated evil. He drove the money changers from the temple with a whip on several occasions (Jn 2:14–16, Mt 21:12, Mk 11:15,17, Lk 19:45). Romans 12:9 says that we are to abhor that which is evil. True love has an element of hate.
The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
Proverbs 20:9Cross Reference: 1 John 1:8 and Romans 3:10, which is a quotation from Psalms 14:1,3 and 53:1-3. Combine this proverb with Prov 28:13.
Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.
Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men: For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.
Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
If thou hast done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou hast thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth.
