(F)Pride and arrogance and the way of evil
and (G)perverted speech I hate.
14 I have (H)counsel and (I)sound wisdom;

15 By me (K)kings reign,
and rulers decree what is just;
16 by me princes rule,
and nobles, all who govern justly.[a]
17 (L)I love those who love me,
and (M)those who seek me diligently find me.
18 (N)Riches and honor are with me,
(O)enduring wealth and (P)righteousness.
