News Item 230. Mishlei 16-18 (Majestic Pride)

A new proverb was posted today (Tuesday, May 3) in the Mishlei section.

Majestic pride is the emotion of self-satisfaction that is associated with royalty and the trappings of power. In our society it may be displayed by very wealthy people or by those with political power. A person who has such wealth or power is in a precarious position. He may easily fall prey to the belief that he deserves to have it because he is better than other people. As a result he fools himself into thinking that he can do no wrong and that whatever he does is inevitably right.
