Proverbs 16

Pro 16:8  Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.
Pro 16:9  A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
Pro 16:10  A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.
Pro 16:11  A just weight and balance are the LORD'S: all the weights of the bag are his work.
Pro 16:12  It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.
Pro 16:13  Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right.
Pro 16:14  The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it. 

This talks about proper leadership for a king or ruler as well as his staff and advisers.  It doesn't do him much good if all of his people are "yes men" and aren't honest, and it is also a reflection of poor leadership if all the staff are corrupt and evil.  Brings a lot of confidence regarding our government, doesn't it?
