December 27: Proverbs 29

Song for Today:
My Lighthouse
He Reigns

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
•••
The king establishes the land by justice,
But he who receives bribes overthrows it.
•••
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;
But happy is he who keeps the law.
•••
The fear of man brings a snare,
But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.
•••
Many seek the ruler’s favor,
But justice for man comes from the Lord.
from Proverbs 29
