I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “diminish”.

Let us go and sacrifice to our God.

yet not ought of your work shall be diminished.

her food,
her raiment,
and her duty of marriage,
shall he not diminish.

then shall she go out free
without money.

Leviticus 25:16 According to the multitude of years

and beget sons and daughters;

because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things,

neither will I have any pity.

and have diminished thine ordinary food,
and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee,
the daughters of the Philistines,
which are ashamed of thy lewd way.

Ezekiel 29:15 It shall be the basest of the kingdoms;
neither shall it exalt itself any more above the nations:
for I will diminish them,
that they shall no more rule over the nations.

and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles;
