Luke 14:7-11

KJ2000(i) 7 And he put forth a parable to those who were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief places; saying unto them, 8 When you are bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest place; lest a more honorable man than you be bidden of him; 9 And he that bade you and him come and say to you, Give this man your place; and you begin with shame to take the lowest place. 10 But when you are bidden, go and sit down in the lowest place; that when he that bade you come, he may say unto you, Friend, go up higher: then shall you have honor in the presence of them that sit at table with you. 11 For whosoever exalts himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
