Christian Standard Bible
2 When a land is in rebellion, it has many rulers,(C)
but with a discerning and knowledgeable person, it endures.
7 A discerning son keeps the law,
but a companion of gluttons humiliates his father.(K)
9 Anyone who turns his ear away from hearing the law—
even his prayer is detestable.(N)
11 A rich person is wise in his own eyes,
but a poor one who has discernment sees through him.
16 A leader who lacks understanding
is very oppressive,
but one who hates dishonest profit
prolongs his life.(X)
28 When the wicked come to power,
but when they are destroyed,
the righteous flourish.(AR)
