With last week’s lesson addressing and describing the humble under affliction, this lesson considers the proud, who sinfully force the straightening of their crooks, sinfully bring their lot into agreement with their desires. Afterwards, the proposition is proven, that it is better to be humble and afflicted than to be proud and divide the spoil (Prov 16.19). May God bless this study.
