versus man's pride
"Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has become His counselor?"
Or who has first given to Him and it shall be repaid to him?"
For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things,
to whom be glory forever." Romans 11:33-36
"For I will make the land most desolate, her arrogant strength shall cease.... Then they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have made the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.” Ezekiel 33:28-29
"Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust,
And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies." Psalm 40:4
