6By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. 7When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. 8Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right. 9A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.10A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment. 11A just weight and balance are the LORD'S: all the weights of the bag are his work. 12It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.
