what is Pharaoh like?

Ezekiel 31

v14

To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among the thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of men, with them that go down to the pit.

Ezekiel 31 compares the king of Egypt to an Assyrian who was a tree in the garden of Eden. The Lord made the tree fall because it raised itself up exceedingly high, and above all the other trees.

We should be humble. We should be willing to sacrifice our own convenience or pleasure out of humility.
