Proverbs 16:12-15 NRS

12 It is an abomination to kings to do evil, for the throne is established by righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of a king, and he loves those who speak what is right.
14 A king's wrath is a messenger of death, and whoever is wise will appease it.
15 In the light of a king's face there is life, and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain.
