Proverbs 30:13

There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up.
– Proverbs 30:13

This saying continues the general denunciation of pride in this group of sayings. The eyes and eyelids of a proud generation are high, meaning they despise, or look down on others around them. Such pride is the first item listed of what God hates (Proverbs 6:16-17). Of course, it is a sin, an affront against God (Proverbs 21:4).
