Proverbs 31:1-9 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 These are the sayings of King Lemuel, an oracle a that his mother taught him. 2 O my son, O son of my womb, O son of my promises, 3 do not spend your strength on women, on those who ruin kings. 4 And it is not for kings, O Lemuel, to guzzle wine. Rulers should not crave liquor. 5 For if they drink, they may forget their duties and be unable to give justice to those who are oppressed. 6 Liquor is for the dying, and wine for those in deep depression. 7 Let them drink to forget their poverty and remember their troubles no more. 8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those who are perishing. 9 Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.
