What does Proverbs 24:26 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 24:26

[Every man] shall kiss [his] lips that giveth a right
answer.
] Either as a witness to a question put to him in court, to which he answers aptly and uprightly; or rather as a judge, who, having heard a cause, answers and gives his opinion of it faithfully, and pronounces a righteous sentence; everyone will love and respect him, and hearken to him and obey him; both affection and obedience are signified by a kiss; see ( Psalms 2:12 ) ( Song of Solomon 8:1 ) .
