Isaiah 2:9-17 — “

So man is humbled,
    and each one is brought low—
    do not forgive them!
 Enter into the rock
    and hide in the dust
from before the terror of the Lord,
    and from the splendor of his majesty.
 The haughty looks of man shall be brought low,
    and the lofty pride of men shall be humbled,
and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.

 For the Lord of hosts has a day
    against all that is proud and lofty,
    against all that is lifted up—and it shall be brought low;
 against all the cedars of Lebanon,
    lofty and lifted up;
    and against all the oaks of Bashan;
 against all the lofty mountains,
    and against all the uplifted hills;
 against every high tower,
    and against every fortified wall;
 against all the ships of Tarshish,
    and against all the beautiful craft.
 And the haughtiness of man shall be humbled,
    and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low,
    and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.

“Humiliation” Word Study: James 1:9-11

“Humiliation” Word Study: James 1:9-11

A Biblical word study in ESV. May God grant me the endurance to see this study carried out.

James 1:9-11 — “Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass[c] he will pass away. For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.”

MacArthur commentary for James 1:9-11: boast. This word refers to pride in a privilege or possession; it is the joy of legitimate pride. Although having nothing in this world, the poor believer can rejoice in his spiritual standing before God by grace and the hope which that brings (cf. Rom. 8:17-18; 1 Peter 1:4). his humiliation. Refers to the rich believer’s being brought low by trials. Such experiences help him rejoice and realize that genuine happiness and contentment depend on the true riches of God’s grace, not earthly wealth.
