He who rules people justly,
He who rules in awe of G-d
is like the light of morning at sunrise,
a morning without clouds ~
[bringing] vegetation out of the earth.
2 Samuel 23.3b-4

Seek good and not evil,
That you may live,
And that the L-rd, the G-d of Hosts,
May truly be with you,
As you think.
Hate evil and love good,
And establish justice in the gate;
Perhaps the L-rd, the G-d of Hosts,
Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
