Mishle 29:2-4 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

When the tzaddikim are increased, the people rejoice, but when the rasha beareth rule, the people groan.

He who loveth chochmah rejoiceth aviv, but he that keepeth company with zonot squanders his hon (substance, wealth).

Melech by mishpat establisheth eretz, but an ish terumot (a man of bribes) bringeth it down.

Proverbs 29:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;
    when the wicked rule, the people groan.

A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father,
    but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.

By justice a king gives a country stability,
    but those who are greedy for[a] bribes tear it down.
