Proverbs 29:3-5 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

He who loves wisdom makes his father glad,
    but one who keeps company with harlots squanders his substance.
By justice a king gives stability to the land,
    but one who exacts gifts ruins it.
A man who flatters his neighbor
    spreads a net for his feet.
