Yea, ail of you gird yourselves with hu- 
mility, to serve one another; for God re- 
sisteth the proud, but giveth grace to the 
humble. Humble yourselves therefore un- 
der the mighty hand of God, that He may 
exalt you in due time; casting all your anx- 
iety upon Him, because He careth lor you. 
— I Peter, 5:5-6.
