Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

James 4:10

_ _ in the sight of the Lord — as continually in the presence of Him who alone is worthy to be exalted: recognizing His presence in all your ways, the truest incentive to humility. The tree, to grow upwards, must strike its roots deep downwards; so man, to be exalted, must have his mind deep-rooted in humility. In 1 Peter 5:6, it is, Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, namely, in His dealings of Providence: a distinct thought from that here.

_ _ lift you up — in part in this world, fully in the world to come.
