Is Pride Boasting?
     The word pride is often misused. People say it means being respectful and looking after things. There is nothing wrong with this. In the Bible pride, which means showing off and boasting, is evil. "James 4:16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil." Many people sin by being proud of themselves, or boasting how good they are. It is common to hear people to say I am proud of myself, or who I am or where I am. But couldn't such language be considered as boasting in God's sight? God condemned the proud but favored the humble. An example of this is in Luke 18:14 where the humble tax collector was received by God, while the proud Pharisee was not.
      Below are some scriptures talking about pride. Luke 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified [rather] than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. Job 40:12 Look on every one [that is] proud, [and] bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place. Psa 12:3 The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, [and] the tongue that speaketh proud things: Pro 15:25 The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow. Pro 16:5 Every one [that is] proud in heart [is] an abomination to the LORD: [though] hand [join] in hand, he shall not be unpunished. Pro 21:4 An high look, and a proud heart, [and] the plowing of the wicked, [is] sin. Isa 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts [shall be] upon every [one that is] proud and lofty, and upon every [one that is] lifted up; and he shall be brought low: Lev 26:19 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: Pro 13:10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised [is] wisdom. Pro 16:18 Pride [goeth] before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Pro 29:23 A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit. Isa 28:3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet: Mal 4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. Jam 4:6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Dan 4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works [are] truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase. Dan 5:20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him: 1Jo 2:16 For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
