Proverbs 29:2-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

When the righteous flourish, the people rejoice,
but when the wicked rule, people groan.

A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father,
but one who consorts with prostitutes destroys his wealth.

By justice a king brings stability to a land,
but a man who demands “contributions”[a]
demolishes it.

Footnotes:

  1. Proverbs 29:4 The Hb word for “contributions” usually refers to offerings in worship.
