Proverbs 28:2

By the transgression of a land many are its princes,
But by a man who understands, who knows, so it endures.

Proverbs 28:12

When the righteous exult, there is great honor,
But when the wicked rise, man has to be sought out.

Proverbs 28:15 - 28:16

Like a roaring lion and a rushing bear
Is a wicked ruler over a poor people.
A leader who lacks discernment abounds in oppressions,
But he who hates greedy gain will prolong his days.

Proverbs 28:28

When the wicked rise, men hide themselves;
But when they perish, the righteous increase.
