This final command found at James 4:10 sums up the preceding nine commands, which mark the truly humble person.  “Humble” comes from the word meaning “to make oneself low.”  Those conscious of being in the presence of the majestic, infinitely holy God are humble (Isaiah 6:5).

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for James 4:10.
