Proverbs 16:13-15 Darby Translation (DARBY)

13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings, and they love him that speaketh aright.

14 The fury 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.
