Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people.
By lovingkindness and truth iniquity is atoned for, And by the fear of the LORD one keeps away from evil.
What is desirable in a man is his kindness, And it is better to be a poor man than a liar .
Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, But who can find a trustworthy man?
Loyalty and truth preserve the king, And he upholds his throne by righteousness.
He who pursues righteousness and loyalty Finds life, righteousness and honor.
She opens her mouth in wisdom, And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
