Proverbs 29:3-5 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
3 A child who loves wisdom makes a parent glad,
but to keep company with prostitutes is to squander one’s substance.
4 By justice a king gives stability to the land,
but one who makes heavy exactions ruins it.
5 Whoever flatters a neighbour
is spreading a net for the neighbour’s feet.
