Psalms 101:3-5

3I will not set before my eyes
anything d  that is worthless.
I hate the work of those who e  fall away;
it shall not cling to me.
4 f  A perverse heart shall be far from me;
I will g  know nothing of evil.
5 Whoever slanders his neighbor h  secretly
I will i  destroy.
Whoever has a j  haughty look and an k  arrogant heart
I will not endure.

Proverbs 16:10-13

10 l  An oracle is on the lips of a king;
his mouth does not sin in judgment.
11 m  A just balance and scales are the  Lord’s;
all the weights in the bag are his work.
12It is an abomination to kings to do evil,
for n  the throne is established by righteousness.
13 o  Righteous lips are the delight of a king,
and he loves him who speaks what is right.

Proverbs 29:12

12If a ruler listens to falsehood,
all his officials will be wicked.
