Proverbs 29:10-18

10The bloodthirsty hate the blameless,
and they seek the life of the upright.
11A fool gives full vent to anger,
but the wise quietly holds it back.
12If a ruler listens to falsehood,
all his officials will be wicked.
13The poor and the oppressor have this in common:
the Lord gives light to the eyes of both.
14If a king judges the poor with equity,
his throne will be established forever.
15The rod and reproof give wisdom,
but a mother is disgraced by a neglected child.
16When the wicked are in authority, transgression increases,
but the righteous will look upon their downfall.
17Discipline your children, and they will give you rest;
they will give delight to your heart.
18Where there is no prophecy, the people cast off restraint,
but happy are those who keep the law.
