Song for Today:
When the righteous increase, the people rejoice,
But when a wicked man rules, people groan.
The king gives stability to the land by justice,
But a man who takes bribes overthrows it.
When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man,
The foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest.
Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained,
But happy is he who keeps the law.
The fear of man brings a snare,
But he who trusts in the LORD will be exalted.
An unjust man is abominable to the righteous,
And he who is upright in the way is abominable to the wicked.
from Proverbs 27
