12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

Romans 12:3

3 Based on the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to set your sights higher than you should, but set them sensibly, as God has apportioned a measure of faith to each.

5 Similarly, you younger ones, submit to elders. Yes, all of you clothe yourselves with humility, submitting to one another, because ‘God resists proud ones, but gives grace to humble ones’.

Luke 14:11

11 Because everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Philippians 2:3-11

3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard one another as being better than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own concerns, but also for what concerns others. 5 In fact, let this mindset be in you that was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, existing in God’s form, did not consider equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but divested Himself, taking a slave’s form, coming to be in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to the point of death —even death on a cross! 9 Indeed, that is why God highly exalted Him and gave Him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow—of those in heaven, those on earth and those under the earth— 11 and every tongue will acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father.

James 4:6

6 But He gives greater grace; therefore He says: “God resists proud ones, but gives grace to humble ones.”
