Proverbs 9:14; Proverbs 16:12; Proverbs 20:8; Proverbs 20:28; Proverbs 25:5; Proverbs 29:14 (New American Standard)
She sits at the doorway of her house, On a seat by the high places of the city,
It is an abomination for kings to commit wicked acts, For a throne is established on righteousness.
A king who sits on the throne of justice Disperses all evil with his eyes.
Loyalty and truth preserve the king, And he upholds his throne by righteousness.
Take away the wicked before the king, And his throne will be established in righteousness.
If a king judges the poor with truth, His throne will be established forever.
