Proverbs 29:2-4 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
2 When righteous people increase, the people of God rejoice,
but when a wicked person rules, everybody groans.
3 A person who loves wisdom makes his father happy,
but one who pays prostitutes wastes his wealth.
4 By means of justice, a king builds up a country,
but a person who confiscates religious contributions tears it down.
