“The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacifie it.”
King James Version (KJV)
11. A iust weight and ballance are the Lords: all the weights of the bagge are his worke. 12. It is an abomination to kings to commit wickednesse: for the throne is established by righteousnesse. 13. Righteous lips are the delight of kings: and they loue him that speaketh right. 14. The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacifie it. 15. In the light of the kings countenance is life, and his fauour is as a cloude of the latter raine. 16. How much better is it to get wisedome, then gold? and to get vnderstanding, rather to be chosen then siluer? 17. The high way of the vpright is to depart from euill: hee that keepeth his way, preserueth his soule.
