Proverbs 29

More thoughts on government today in Proverbs 29. (I hope someone on the White House staff reads my blog.)

 

When the righteous become numerous, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan. (29:2)

A king brings stability to a land by justice, but one who exacts tribute tears is down. (29:4)

The righteous person cares for the legal rights of the poor; the wicked does not understand such knowledge. (29:7)

If a ruler listens to lies, all his ministers will be wicked. (29:12)

If a king judges the poor in truth, his throne will be established forever. (29:14)

Many people seek the face of a ruler, but it is from the LORD that one receives justice. (29:26)
