6And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”#4:6 Prov 3:34 (Greek version). 7So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. 10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.
