A king delights in a wise servant, but a shameful servant arouses his fury.
King James Bible
The king's favour is toward a wise servant: but his wrath is against him that causeth shame.
American Standard Version
The king's favor is toward a servant that dealeth wisely; But his wrath will be against him that causeth shame.
Young's Literal Translation
The favour of a king is to a wise servant, And an object of his wrath is one causing shame!
Proverbs 14:35 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The king's favor is toward a wise servant - The king should have an intelligent man for his minister; a man of deep sense, sound judgment, and of a feeling, merciful disposition. He who has not the former will plunge the nation into difficulties; and he who has not the latter will embark her in disastrous wars. Most wars are occasioned by bad ministers, men of blood, who cannot be happy but in endeavoring to unchain the spirit of discord. Let every humane heart pray, Lord, scatter thou the people who delight in war! Amen - so be it. Selah!
