10 Divination is on the lips of the king;
His mouth must not transgress in judgment.
11 (A)Honest weights and scales are the Lord’s;
All the weights in the bag are His [a]work.
12 It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness,
For (B)a throne is established by righteousness.
13 (C)Righteous lips are the delight of kings,
And they love him who speaks what is right.
14 As messengers of death is the king’s wrath,
But a wise man will (D)appease it.
15 In the light of the king’s face is life,
And his favor is like a (E)cloud of the latter rain.
