Proverbs 29:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Everyone rejoices when the lovers of God flourish,
but the people groan when the wicked rise to power.
When you love wisdom, your father is overjoyed.
But when you associate with prostitutes,
you waste your wealth in exchange for disgrace.[a]
A godly leader who values justice
is a great strength and example to the people.
But the one who sells his influence for money[b]
tears down what is right.
