Pride Goes Before a Crawl

It is not enough
     that the greatness of your dominion
          reaches to the ends of the earth;
Must the majesty of your kingdom,
     your power and honor and glory,
          also reach the highest Heaven?

Will it be enough
     for you to eat the grasses of
          and with the beasts of the field,
Your hair and nails as feathers and claws,
     wetted with many a morning's dew,
          to see it's God who rules over you?

Lift your eyes to Him in Heaven!
Bless Him who reigns forever!
And knowing pride goes before a crawl,
     praise and honor the one true King!

Proverbs 16:18
Daniel 4
