And the strength of the king Hath loved judgment, Thou -- Thou hast established uprightness; Judgment and righteousness in Jacob, Thou -- Thou hast done.
An oath is on the lips of a king, In judgment his mouth trespasseth not.
The delight of kings are righteous lips, And whoso is speaking uprightly he loveth,
An abomination to kings is doing wickedness, For by righteousness is a throne established.
A king sitting on a throne of judgment, Is scattering with his eyes all evil,
A wise king is scattering the wicked, And turneth back on them the wheel.
The favour of a king is to a wise servant, And an object of his wrath is one causing shame!
Hast thou seen a man speedy in his business? Before kings he doth station himself, He stations not himself before obscure men!
Whoso is loving cleanness of heart, Grace are his lips, a king is his friend.
The fury of a king is messengers of death, And a wise man pacifieth it.
By long-suffering is a ruler persuaded, And a soft tongue breaketh a bone.
