Proverbs 29:2-4 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

When the righteous thrive, people rejoice.
When the wicked rule, people groan.
Whoever loves wisdom brings joy to his father,
but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.

By justice a king brings stability to a land,
but one who takes bribes brings it ruin.
