I think in our time the word pride is a problem because for politically oppressed people, it's always convenient to say that their sin is pride when they're trying to liberate themselves or achieve a measure of equality or justice. This abuse of the word pride by the powers-that-be has poisoned the word. I think a better translation today would be "arrogance." Pride itself is a virtue insofar as it's understood as self-esteem.
