Now we call the proud blessed. 

Thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. § Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look. § Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. § Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
