「Fine speech is not becoming a fool, still less is false speech for a ruler.
He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, the two of them are both abominations of Yahweh.
He who is crooked of heart will not find goodness, and he who is perverse, by his tongue he will fall into calamity.
The wicked will accept a bribe from the lap, in order to pervert the ways of justice.」
Proverbs 17:7, 15, 20, 23 LEB
