12 It is an abomination for kings to commit wicked acts, For a 1throne is established on righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings, And he who speaks right is loved.
14 The fury of a king is like messengers of death, But a wise man will appease it.
15 In the light of a king's face is life, And his favor is like a cloud with the 2spring rain.
