28 Loyalty and faithfulness preserve the king,
and his throne is upheld by righteousness.
21The kings heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord;
he turns it wherever he will.
2 All deeds are right in the sight of the doer,
but the Lord weighs the heart.
3 To do righteousness and justice
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart
the lamp of the wickedare sin.
7 The violence of the wicked will sweep them away,
because they refuse to do what is just.
