Proverbs 11:2 – “When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom.” Many proverbs contrast the arrogant with the humble, as this one does. The Hebrew word for pride comes from a root that means “to boil up”; it refers to a raging arrogance or insolence. The image pictures the presumptuous or arrogant behavior of the godless person. Such behavior always leads to shame.
