Proverbs 16:13-15 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings;
    and they love him that speaketh right.

14 The wrath of a king is as messengers of death:
    but a wise man will pacify it.

15 In the light of the king’s countenance is life;
    and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.

Proverbs 16:13-15 New International Version (NIV)

13 Kings take pleasure in honest lips;
    they value the one who speaks what is right.

14 A king’s wrath is a messenger of death,
    but the wise will appease it.

15 When a king’s face brightens, it means life;
    his favor is like a rain cloud in spring.
