wise in your own conceits
12:16 wise in your own conceits. This is the last of six occurrences of this biting phrase. See also Proverbs 26:5, 12, 16; 28:11; Romans 11:25. Pride of one’s position, intelligence, race, status or wealth constitute ungodly conceit, and so do laziness and foolishness, as seen in these passages.
