Ecclesiasticus 10:12-18


12 The beginning of human pride is to forsake the Lord;
   the heart has withdrawn from its Maker.
13 For the beginning of pride is sin,
   and the one who clings to it pours out abominations.
Therefore the Lord brings upon them unheard-of calamities,
   and destroys them completely.
14 The Lord overthrows the thrones of rulers,
   and enthrones the lowly in their place.
15 The Lord plucks up the roots of the nations,*
   and plants the humble in their place.
16 The Lord lays waste the lands of the nations,
   and destroys them to the foundations of the earth.
17 He removes some of them and destroys them,
   and erases the memory of them from the earth.
18 Pride was not created for human beings,
   or violent anger for those born of women.
