A King Will Reign in Righteousness
Behold, a a king will reign in righteousness,
And princes will rule with justice.
A man will be as a hiding place from the wind,
And b a cover from the tempest,
As rivers of water in a dry place,
As the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.
c The eyes of those who see will not be dim,
And the ears of those who hear will listen.
Also the heart of the rash will d understand knowledge,
And the tongue of the stammerers will be ready to speak plainly.
The foolish person will no longer be called generous,
Nor the miser said to be bountiful;
For the foolish person will speak foolishness,
And his heart will work e iniquity:
To practice ungodliness,
To utter error against the LORD,
To keep the hungry unsatisfied,
And he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
Also the schemes of the schemer are evil;
He devises wicked plans
To destroy the poor with f lying words,
Even when the needy speaks justice.
But a generous man devises generous things,
And by generosity he shall stand.
New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
And there will be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and rain.
In that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, And the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
These also who erred in spirit will come to understanding, And those who complained will learn doctrine.
Proverbs 24:7 - 9
Wisdom is too lofty for a fool; He does not open his mouth in the gate.
Jeremiah 5:26 - 28
For among My people are found wicked men; They lie in wait as one who sets snares; They set a trap; They catch men.
That they may successfully do evil with both hands - The prince asks for gifts, The judge seeks a bribe, And the great man utters his evil desire; So they scheme together.
