Proverbs 29:2-4 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

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

Footnotes:

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