"For My hand made all these things, thus all these
things came into being," declares the Lord.
"But to this one I will look, to him who is humble
and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word."
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.
When pride comes, then comes dishonor,
but with the humble is wisdom.
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men
but as wise, making the most of your time, because the
days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand
what the will of the Lord is.
Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him
show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness
of wisdom...But the wisdom from above is first pure,
then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and
good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the
seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace
by those who make peace.
James 3:13, 17-18
The humble man is a wise man.
