Proverbs 29:4-14 NRS

4 By justice a king gives stability to the land, but one who makes heavy exactions ruins it.
5 Whoever flatters a neighbor is spreading a net for the neighbor's feet.
6 In the transgression of the evil there is a snare, but the righteous sing and rejoice.
7 The righteous know the rights of the poor; the wicked have no such understanding.
8 Scoffers set a city aflame, but the wise turn away wrath.
9 If the wise go to law with fools, there is ranting and ridicule without relief.
10 The bloodthirsty hate the blameless, and they seek the life of the upright.
11 A fool gives full vent to anger, but the wise quietly holds it back.
12 If a ruler listens to falsehood, all his officials will be wicked.
13 The poor and the oppressor have this in common: the Lord gives light to the eyes of both.
14 If a king judges the poor with equity, his throne will be established forever.
