Proverbs 16:12-15 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

12 Wicked behavior is detestable to kings,
since a throne is established through righteousness.

13 Righteous lips are a king’s delight,
and he loves one who speaks honestly.

14 A king’s fury is a messenger of death,
but a wise person appeases it.

15 When a king’s face lights up, there is life;
his favor is like a cloud with spring rain.
