8. God resisteth the proud, and gives grace to the humble. 1 PET. 5:5.
As a little child relies
On a care beyond his own;
Knows he’s neither strong nor wise,
Fears to stir a step alone:
Let me thus with thee abide,
As my Father, Guard, and Guide.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. 1 PET. 5:6.
