    I remember, as a child, sitting in my bedroom and crying because I was constantly being bullied by classmates, teaching staff, and family alike because I had a skin condition that I could not help having. I was praying to God with my hand stretched out to Him. I know He heard me, and it gives comfort : . Thank you God, I love you

    The "proud doer" here is saying/expressing,"I am thus because of thee", not, "I am thus because of me". The pride, is a delight in the Lord and his presence(v.20) in the life of a believer. Such as, a person might say, "I am proud to know him",or,"I am proud of my God". There is no sin in this form of the word and it is not the "pride of man'.

    Anand - " ..... plentifully rewrd the proud doer." - the PROUD doer, pride is a sin, pride in what YOU have done, because that is not giving glory to God. The 'reward' for pride is judgment from God.
  • Anand
    What is the meaning of the last verse? - "plentifully rewardeth the proud doer" O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
