For every evil there is an opposite excellence: for lust, temperance; for gluttony, continence; for avarice, uprightness; for anger, mildness; for pain, joy; for forgetfulness, memory; for disregard, endurance; for imprudence, prudence; for cowardice, courage; for vanity, humility; and so forth. Only for arrogance is there no opposite excellence, on account of its excessive evil: God set himself against it; for "the Lord sets himself against the prideful, and gives his charity to the humble".[1]
And the Prophet [says]: "raise your hands towards their arrogances." [2] And elsewhere: "pay back the arrogant."[3]
In the Apostle [it is said]: "it must be thought that those who puff up against those who do not have [something] with what they have are arrogant".[4]
And Aelian [says]: "they used to set up a notable and prideful spectacle."[5] Meaning admired.
[In the sense of] magnificent [the headword] also [means] bright. Aelian [says]: "mattresses adorned with some sort of magnificent weaving".[6]
