Ethics

Conceit

When he is told to fear [and respect] God, he is seized by pride, which drives him to wrongdoing. Hell will be enough for him! What an evil resting-place! (Qur'an, 2:206)

Bible God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. (James, 4:6) Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, Who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. (1 Timothy, 6:17) Torah You warned them to return to Your law, but they became arrogant and disobeyed Your commands. They sinned against Your ordinances, by which a man will live if he obeys them. Stubbornly they turned their backs on You, became stiff-necked, and refused to listen. (Nehemiah, 9:29)
