Today is September 28. It’s a good day to read Proverbs 28. Maybe the wise should call the 28th Recognize and Resist Wicked Rulers Day.
The wicked flee when no one pursues,
but THE RIGHTEOUS ARE BOLD AS A LION.
When a land transgresses, it has many rulers,
but with a man of understanding and knowledge,
its stability will long continue.
Those who forsake the law praise the wicked,
but THOSE WHO KEEP THE LAW STRIVE AGAINST THEM.
When the righteous triumph, there is great glory,
but when the wicked rise, people hide themselves.
Like a roaring lion or a charging bear
is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
A ruler who lacks understanding is a cruel oppressor,
but he who hates unjust gain will prolong his days.
When the wicked rise, people hide themselves,
but when they perish, the righteous increase.
