Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.
He hath put down the mighty from [their] seats, and exalted them of low degree.
He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and [love] salutations in the marketplaces,
But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, [even] Christ.

And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

Wherefore are we counted as beasts, [and] reputed vile in your sight?
That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest [such] words go out of thy mouth?
Why doth thine heart carry thee away? and what do thy eyes wink at,
[Are] the consolations of God small with thee? is there any secret thing with thee?
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek [after God]: God [is] not in all his thoughts.

Lift not up your horn on high: speak [not with] a stiff neck.

They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
They are corrupt, and speak wickedly [concerning] oppression: they speak loftily.
Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them [as] a garment.
Lo, [this is] the man [that] made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, [and] strengthened himself in his wickedness.
Their inward thought [is, that] their houses [shall continue] for ever, [and] their dwelling places to all generations; they call [their] lands after their own names.
O love the LORD, all ye his saints: [for] the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips [are] our own: who [is] lord over us?

With us [are] both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father.
What knowest thou, that we know not? [what] understandest thou, which [is] not in us?
Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself?

And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for [it is] he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as [it is] this day.
And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of [mine] hand hath gotten me this wealth.
Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
And [when] thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;
Lest [when] thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt [therein];
Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:
And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:
Now I know that the LORD [is] greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly [he was] above them.

[Art] thou the first man [that] was born? or wast thou made before the hills?
Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips testify against thee.
For thy mouth uttereth thine iniquity, and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty.
Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God.
Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good?
Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind?
Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,
O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.
What ye know, [the same] do I know also: I [am] not inferior unto you.
But I have understanding as well as you; I [am] not inferior to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these?
No doubt but ye [are] the people, and wisdom shall die with you.
For vain man would be wise, though man be born [like] a wild ass's colt.

The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,
The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,
In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of [their] tinkling ornaments [about their feet], and [their] cauls, and [their] round tires like the moon,
Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.
Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing [as] they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:

The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,
Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?
As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria;
[Is] not Calno as Carchemish? [is] not Hamath as Arpad? [is] not Samaria as Damascus?
