There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are
] the ways of death.
Proverbs 26:12 Seest
thou a man
wise in his own conceit? [there is
] more hope of a fool than of him.
Woe unto them
that call evil good
, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! ... Woe unto [them that are
in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight
How do ye say, We
] wise, and the law
of the LORD [is
] with us? Lo
, certainly in vain made he [it
]; the pen of the scribes [is
] in vain. ... The wise [men] are
ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo
, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom
] in them?
Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him? ... But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.
And Jesus said, For
judgment I am come into this world, that they
which see not might see; and that they which see might be
made blind. ... Jesus said unto them, If
ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And art confident
that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light
of them which are in darkness, ... Thou that makest
thy boast of the law, through breaking the law dishonourest thou God?
1 Corinthians 1:19
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. ... For after that in the wisdom
of God the world
by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness
of preaching to save them that believe.
1 Corinthians 3:18
Let no man deceive
any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let
him become a fool, that he may be wise. ... And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that
they are vain.
Who [is] a
wise man and endued
with knowledge among you? let
him shew out of a good
conversation his works with meekness
of wisdom. ... But the wisdom
that is from above is first
pure, then peaceable

of mercy and good fruits, without partiality
, and without hypocrisy.
2 Peter 1:9
But he that lacketh

, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he
was purged from his old sins.
2 Peter 2:18
For when they speak great swelling
] of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, [through much

, and miserable, and poor, and blind
, and naked
