Denn Gott widersteht den Hochmütigen,

This is an interesting series of exhortations. Verse 5 contains two exhortations, the first one is to be subject to the elders. What follows is a second exhortation (consisting of two separate ones), that goes even further (P = progression), namely for everyone to be humble. The first of the two exhortations to be humble is with regard to each other. The action (Ac) of being humble has a purpose. There's a connection between God's blessings and our humility towards other people. If we're humble, we'll receive grace. If we're not, we won't. The second exhortation goes further by describing that humility ultimately comes from submitting under God. Verses 6 and 7 are a bit more complex. First, there's the action of humbling ourselves under God's hand with the purpose of being exalted. This runs parallel to Verses 5b-d. But then there's also the manner (Mn) in which we ought to humble ourselves described. We humble ourselves before God through casting our anxiety on him. How can we do it? What's the Ground (G) to do that? Why can we even think of doing such a thing? Because the almighty God, who created the heavens and the earth and upholds every atom in the universe cares for us, we need not be anxious anymore. If not being anxious is the way to humility, by implication being anxious leads to pride. It's like saying: Yeah, God...you're all powerful and you care about me, but I'm still not sure you can manage that . Isn't it great how all virtues are connected with each other for our good? Virtue isn't an end in itself, but instead leads to our happiness. That we would just see that more often...
