Here are the 25 most important Bible scriptures on arrogance.
1 Samuel 2:3
Talk no more so very proudly, let not arrogance come from your mouth; for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
“I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant, and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.”
Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips.
1 John 4:1
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 Timothy 5:8
But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.
What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you?
But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”
And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”
“‘And now we call the arrogant blessed. Evildoers not only prosper but they put God to the test and they escape.'”
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.
“Scoffer” is the name of the arrogant, haughty man who acts with arrogant pride.
Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet.
They close their hearts to pity; with their mouths they speak arrogantly.
They pour out their arrogant words; all the evildoers boast.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.
As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.
