16 good Bible verses about pride, arrogance and humility

Pride has been the original sin that brought once pure and holy angel of God down and he became what we know now as Satan. This character feature has been a stumbling block for many. God hates it and wants us to learn humility. It is easier said than done though. Both Bible and life teach us to be humble before God and men. When proper time comes God exalts us. So, let us get rid of arrogance and put on humility. God bless you while you will be reading Bible verses about pride, arrogance and humility.
