Proverbs 29:3-5 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

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 person who demands “contributions”[a]
demolishes it.

A person who flatters[b] his neighbor
spreads a net for his feet.

Footnotes:

  1. 29:4 The Hb word for contributions usually refers to offerings in worship.
  2. 29:5 Lit is smooth on
