Proverbs 29:2-4 American Standard Version (ASV)

When the righteous [a]are increased, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man beareth rule, the people sigh.
Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father;
But he that keepeth company with harlots wasteth his substance.
The king by justice establisheth the land;
But [b]he that exacteth gifts overthroweth it.
