Proverbs 25:4-5

4-5Remove impurities from the silver

and the silversmith can craft a fine chalice;

Remove the wicked from leadership

and authority will be credible and God-honoring.

6-7Don't work yourself into the spotlight;

don't push your way into the place of prominence.

It's better to be promoted to a place of honor

than face humiliation by being demoted.
