“As a roaring lyon and a ranging beare: so is a wicked ruler ouer the poore people.”
King James Version (KJV)
12. When righteous men do reioyce, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden. 13. He that couereth his sinnes, shall not prosper: but who so confesseth and forsaketh them, shall haue mercie. 14. Happy is the man that feareth always: but he that hardeneth his heart, shall fall into mischiefe. 15. As a roaring lyon and a ranging beare: so is a wicked ruler ouer the poore people. 16. The prince that wanteth vnderstanding, is also a great oppressour: but he that hateth couetousnesse, shall prolong his dayes. 17. A man that doth violence to the blood of any person, shall flie to the pit, let no man stay him. 18. Whoso walketh vprightly, shall be saued: but he that is peruerse in his wayes, shall fall at once.
