The name of the Lord is a fortified tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe.
The wealth of the rich is their fortified city;
they imagine it a wall too high to scale.
Before a downfall the heart is haughty,
but humility comes before honor.
To answer before listening—
that is folly and shame.
The human spirit can endure in sickness,
but a crushed spirit who can bear?
-Proverbs 18:10-14, NIV
