Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord , and turn away from evil.

Rather, we should avoid thinking so, which is sinful pride, and other evil thoughts and practices that lead and separate us from God.

VerseD: Proverbs 18:2

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.
