  1. Haughty

    The bible mentions that God despises a haughty look. What are some examples of a haughty look?
     
  2. Perhaps a simple definition of haughty would help:
    H1361
    גּבהּ
    gâbahh
    gaw-bah'
    A primitive root; to soar, that is, be lofty; figuratively to be haughty: - exalt, be haughty, be (make) high (-er), lift up, mount up, be proud, raise up great height, upward.

    So to be haughty is to be proud and arrogant.

    Isa 3:16 Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:

    Pro 21:24 Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.
     
  3. Oh, yuck..
