Proverbs 31

1  The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.

2  What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?

3  Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

4  It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

5  Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.

6  Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

7  Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.

8  Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.

9  Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

10  Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
