The Words of Lemuel

1 The words of King Lemuel, the aoracle which his mother taught him: 2 What, O my son? And what, O 1son of my womb? And what, O son of my 2vows? 3 3Do not give your strength to women, Or your ways to that which 4destroys kings. 4 It is not for 5kings, O Lemuel, It is not for kings to 6drink wine, Or for rulers to desire strong drink, 5 For they will drink and forget what is decreed, And 7pervert the brights of all the cafflicted. 6 Give strong drink to him who is 8perishing, And wine to him d9whose life is bitter. 7 Let him drink and forget his poverty And remember his trouble no more. 8 10Open your mouth for the mute, For the erights of all the funfortunate . 9 Open your mouth, 11judge righteously, And gdefend the 12rights of the afflicted and needy.
