Honour and the Bible

It is God who gives true honour or "promotion".
"For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another." Psalms 75:6,7, NKJV

It is good to give honour to each other.

Honouring parents is one of God's commandments.
"Honor your father and mother, that you may have a long, good life in the land the Lord your God will give you." Exodus 20:12, TLB5




Jesus on Honour

And He (Jesus) began speaking a parable to the invited guests when He noticed how they had been picking out the places of honour at the table; saying to them, "When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honour, lest someone more distinguished than you may have been invited by him, and he who invited you both shall come and say to you, 'Give place to this man,' and then in disgrace you proceed to occupy the last place. "But when you are invited, go and recline at the last place, so that when the one who has invited you comes, he may say to you, 'Friend, move up higher'; then you will have honour in the sight of all who are at the table with you. "For everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted." Luke 14:7-11 (NASB77)5

Meaning of Honour

Honour or Honor (from the Latin word honos, honoris) is the evaluation of a person's trustworthiness and social status based on that individual's espousals and actions. Honour is deemed exactly what determines a person's character: whether or not the person reflects honesty, respect, integrity, or fairness. Accordingly, individuals are assigned worth and stature based on the harmony of their actions, code of honour, and that of the society at large. Honour can be analysed as a relativistic concept, i.e., conflicts between individuals and even cultures arising as a consequence of material circumstance and ambition, rather than fundamental differences in principle. Alternatively, it can be viewed as nativist that honour is as real to the human condition as love, and likewise derives from the formative personal bonds that establish one's personal dignity and character.

Dr Samuel Johnson, in his A Dictionary of the English Language (1755), defined honour as having several senses, the first of which was "nobility of soul, magnanimity, and a scorn of meanness." This sort of honour derives from the perceived virtuous conduct and personal integrity of the person endowed with it. On the other hand, Johnson also defined honour in relationship to "reputation" and "fame"; to "privileges of rank or birth", and as "respect" of the kind which "places an individual socially and determines his right to precedence." This sort of honour is not so much a function of moral or ethical excellence, as it is a consequence of power. Finally, with respect to women, honour may be synonymous with "chastity" or "virginity", or in case of a married woman, "fidelity".7
