Proverbs 29:3-5 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)
3 He who loves wisdom makes his father glad,
but one who keeps company with harlots squanders his substance.
4 By justice a king gives stability to the land,
but one who exacts gifts ruins it.
5 A man who flatters his neighbor
spreads a net for his feet.
