Proverbs 16:5

5Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. (KJV)

Proverbs 16:18

18Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. (KJV)

Proverbs 18:12

12Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility. (KJV)

Proverbs 26:1-12

1As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool. 2As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. 3A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool's back. 4Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. 5Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit. 6He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage. 7The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools. 8As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so is he that giveth honour to a fool. 9As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools. 10The great God that formed all things both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors. 11As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. 12Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him. (KJV)
