Proverbs 14:34; Proverbs 29:2; Proverbs 29:18

34  Righteousness exalts a nation,

but sin is a reproach to any people.

When cthe righteous increase, the people rejoice,

but when dthe wicked rule, the people groan.

18  Where zthere is no prophetic vision the people acast off restraint,1

but blessed is he who bkeeps the law.
