Job 22:27-29

New Life Version

27: You will pray to Him, and He will hear you. And you will keep your promises to Him.
28: You will decide something, and it will be done for you. Light will shine on your path.
29: For God puts down the man who is filled with pride. But He saves the one who is not proud.
