A mighty king who loves justice, you have established fairness. You have exercised justice and righteousness over Jacob.
When a king is ready to speak officially, what he says should not err with respect to justice.
Kings take pleasure in righteous speech; they treasure a person who speaks what is upright.
Kings detest wrongdoing, for through righteousness the throne is established.
A king sits on a throne of justice, sifting out all sorts of evil with his glance.
A wise king sifts the wicked, crushing them with the threshing wheel.
The king approves the wise servant, but he is angry at anyone who acts shamefully.
Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will work for kings, not unimportant people.
Whoever loves purity and gracious speech will gain the king as his friend.
The king's wrath results in a death sentence, but whoever is wise will appease him.
Through patience a ruler may be persuaded; a gentle word can break a bone.
