Proverbs 25:2–7

It is the glory of God cto conceal a thing:

But the honour of kings is dto search out a matter.

The heaven for height, and the earth for depth,

And the heart of kings is unsearchable.

eTake away fthe dross from the silver,

And there shall come forth a vessel for the finer.

eTake away gthe wicked from before the king,

And hhis throne shall be established in righteousness.

Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king,

And istand not in the place of great men:

jFor better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither;

Than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince

kWhom thine eyes have seen.
