‭"It is‭ not good‭ to eat‭‭ much‭‭ honey‭: so ‭for men‭ to search‭ their own glory‭ ‭is not‭ glory‭."‭
>Proverbs 25:27, KJV

"Thus saith‭‭ the LORD‭, Let not the wise‭ ‭man‭ glory‭‭ in his wisdom‭, neither let the mighty‭ ‭man‭ glory‭‭ in his might‭, let not the rich‭ ‭man‭ glory‭‭ in his riches‭:‭ ‭But let him that glorieth‭‭ glory‭‭ in this, that he understandeth‭‭ and knoweth‭‭ me, that I ‭am‭ the LORD‭ which exercise‭‭ lovingkindness‭, judgment‭, and righteousness‭, in the earth‭: for in these ‭things‭ I delight‭‭, saith‭‭ the LORD‭.‭"
Jeremiah 9:23-24, KJV

"But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted."
Matthew 23:5-12, KJV

"And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces, And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts: Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation."
Mark 12:38-40, KJV

"Jesus‭ answered‭‭, I‭ have‭‭ not‭ a devil‭; but‭ I honour‭‭ my‭ Father‭, and‭ ye‭ do dishonour‭‭ me‭.‭ ‭And‭ I‭ seek‭‭ not‭ mine own‭ glory‭: there is‭‭ one that seeketh‭‭ and‭ judgeth‭‭.‭"
John 8:49-50, KJV

"Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God."
John 12:42-43, KJV

"But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God."
Romans 2:29, KJV

Therefore let no man glory in men . . . And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?"
1 Corinthians 3:21a, 4:6-7, KJV

"Of‭ such an one‭ will I glory‭‭: yet‭ of‭ myself‭ I will‭‭ not‭ glory‭‭, but‭ in‭ mine‭ infirmities‭.‭"
2 Corinthians 12:5, KJV

"Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble."
1 Peter 5:5, KJV
