Proverbs 16:12-15 HNV

12 It is an abomination for kings to do wrong, For the throne is established by righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings. They value one who speaks the truth.
14 The king's wrath is a messenger of death, But a wise man will pacify it.
15 In the light of the king's face is life. His favor is like a cloud of the spring rain.
