The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled and the pride of men brought low; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
The proud look of man will be abased And the loftiness of man will be humbled, And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
The day is coming when your pride will be brought low and the LORD alone will be exalted.
People with a big head are headed for a fall, pretentious egos brought down a peg. It's GOD alone at front-and-center on the Day we're talking about,
The high looks of man will be put to shame, and the pride of men will be made low, and only the Lord will be lifted up in that day.
The haughty eyes of people shall be brought low, and the pride of everyone shall be humbled; and the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.
The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, The haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, And the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

1 tn Heb “and the eyes of the pride of men will be brought low, and the arrogance of men will be brought down.” The repetition of the verbs שָׁפַל (shafal) and שָׁחָח (shakhakh) from v. 9 draws attention to the appropriate nature of the judgment. Those proud men who “bow low” before idols will be forced to “bow low” before God when he judges their sin.
2 tn Or “elevated”; CEV “honored.”
