Thus says the Lord: 

      "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
       Let not the mighty glory in his might; 
       nor the rich man his riches.

       But let him who glories glory in this--

       That he understands and knows Me,
             that I am the Lord,
       Exercising loving kindness,
          and righteousness in the earth.
             For in these I delight."                     

                                ----Jeremiah 9:23 & 24
