The good and the bad king (Prov 29:12-29:14)

“If a ruler listens to falsehood,

All his officials will be wicked.

The poor and the oppressor

Have this in common.

Yahweh gives light to the eyes of both of them.

If a king judges the poor with equity,

His throne will be established forever.”

If a king listens to false things, all his officials will be wicked. The poor and the oppressor have one thing in common. Yahweh gives life and light to their eyes. If a good king judges the poor with fairness, his throne will be established forever.
