Words of King Lemuel

1 The words of King Lemuel of Massa, which his mother taught him: 2 No, my son! No, son of my womb! No, son of my solemn promises! 3 Don't give your strength to women, your ways to those who wipe out kings. 4 It isn't for kings, Lemuel, it isn't for kings to drink wine, for rulers to cravea strong drink. 5 Otherwise, they will drink and forget the law, and violate the rights of the needy. 6 Give strong drink to those who are perishing and wine to those whose hearts are bitter. 7 Let them drink and forget their poverty and no longer remember their toil. 8 Speak out on behalf of the voiceless, and for the rights of all who are vulnerable.b 9 Speak out in order to judge with righteousness and to defend the needy and the poor.
