Pride Goes Before a Fall

Solomon had said, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18). Israel, and even Judah, had to experience that truth,
The pride of Israel testifies to his face;
Therefore Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity;
Judah also stumbles with them.
(Hosea 5:5)
Did it happen? Yes, the Old Testament makes that abundantly clear that Israel and Judah became full of pride and for that they stumbled in their sin badly.
If God would not spare Israel and Judah, what makes us think He will spare any nation today or any Christian?
