Proverbs 16:13

13 Righteous lips are a king's delight, and he loves one who speaks honestly.

Proverbs 16:13 In-Context

11 Honest balances and scales are the Lord's; all the weights in the bag are His concern.
12 Wicked behavior is detestable to kings, since a throne is established through righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are a king's delight, and he loves one who speaks honestly.
14 A king's fury is a messenger of death, but a wise man appeases it.
15 When a king's face lights up, there is life; his favor is like a cloud with spring rain.
