Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule in justice.
Each will be like a hiding place from the wind, a covert from the tempest, like streams of water in a dry place, like the shade of a great rock in a weary land.
Then the eyes of those who see will not be closed, and the ears of those who hear will hearken.
The mind of the rash will have good judgment, and the tongue of the stammerers will speak readily and distinctly.
The fool will no more be called noble, nor the knave said to be honorable.
For the fool speaks folly, and his mind plots iniquity: to practice ungodliness, to utter error concerning the LORD, to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink.
The knaveries of the knave are evil; he devises wicked devices to ruin the poor with lying words, even when the plea of the needy is right.
