Proverbs 17:26

17:26 It is terrible to punish a righteous person,

and to flog honorable men is wrong.

Proverbs 25:6-7

25:6 Do not honor yourself before the king,

and do not stand in the place of great men;

25:7 for it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,”

than to put you lower before a prince,

whom your eyes have seen.
