17. Wise in your own Conceit



This phrase means not knowing the wisdom of God, but thinking you have our own wisdom.

Proverbs 18:11 - "The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high wall in his own conceit."

Proverbs 26:5 - "Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit."

Proverbs 26:12 - "Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him."

Proverbs 26:16 - "The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason."

Proverbs 28:11 - "The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out."

Romans 11:25 - "For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in."

Romans 12:16 - "Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits."
