Proverbs 29:13-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)

13 Poor people and their oppressors
have only one thing in common—
God made them both.[a]
14 The best insurance for a leader’s longevity
is to demonstrate justice for the poor.
15 Experiencing many corrections and rebukes will make you wise.
But if left to your own ways, you’ll bring disgrace to your parents.[b]
