Chapter 7: On Humility (Cont.)

The seventh degree of humility 
is that he consider himself lower and of less account
 
than anyone else,
 
and this not only in verbal protestation
 
but also with the most heartfelt inner conviction,
 
humbling himself and saying with the Prophet,
 
“But I am a worm and no man,
 
the scorn of men and the outcast of the people” (Ps. 21[22]:7).
“After being exalted, I have been humbled
 
and covered with confusion” (Pa. 87:16).
 
And again,
 
“It is good for me that You have humbled me,
 
that I may learn Your commandments” (Ps. 118[119]:71).
