Good and upright is the LORD;
therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
He leads the humble in what is right,
and teaches the humble his way.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
For though the LORD is high,
he regards the lowly, but the haughty he knows from afar.
The LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those
who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous.
Whoever exalts himself will be humbled,
and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders.
Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another,
for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
Humble yourselves, therefore,
under the mighty hand of God
so that at the proper time he may exalt you,
casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:5-7
