Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.

Every one [that is] proud in heart [is] an abomination to the LORD: [though] hand [join] in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

O LORD, thou [art] our father; we [are] the clay, and thou our potter; and we all [are] the work of thy hand. Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we [are] all thy people.--Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed [to the yoke]: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou [art] the LORD my God. Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon [my] thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.--[It is] good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.

Affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.

1 Peter 5:6 Proverbs 16:5 Isaiah 64:8,9 Jeremiah 31:18,19 Lamentations 3:27 Job 5:6,7


Yea, hath God said?

When the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God.--[Jesus] said, It is written, . . . it is written, . . . it is written.--Then the devil leaveth him.

I may not return with thee. . . . For it was said to me by the word of the LORD, Thou shalt eat no bread nor drink water there, nor turn again to go by the way that thou camest. He said unto him, I [am] a prophet also as thou [art]; and an angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. [But] he lied unto him. So he went back with him. . . . The man of God, . . . was disobedient unto the word of the LORD: therefore the LORD hath delivered him unto the lion, which hath torn him, and slain him, according to the word of the LORD.-- Though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.--Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
