Pride first, then the crash, but humility is a precursor to honor. The payoff for meekness and Fear-of-God is plenty and honor and a satisfying life. You who are younger must follow your leaders. But all of you, leaders and followers alike, are to be down to earth with each other, for– God has had it with the proud. But takes delight in just plain people.
