Do not lift up your horn on high.. Psalm 75:5a The humble man realizes that beauty, strength, rank, success, power and wealth are gifts of God. He is their author.

Not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the desert comes exaltation; But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another.

Samuel Slater, 1629-1704, English Puritan clergyman vicar
