It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drinkwine; nor forprinces strong drink:5
Lest they drink , and forget the law , and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted .
6Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish , and wine unto those that be of heavyhearts.7
Let him drink , and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.
8Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.9Open thy mouth,judgerighteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.10
Who can find a virtuouswoman? for her price is far above rubies.11
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.12
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.13
She seekethwool, and flax, and workethwillingly with her hands.14
She is like the merchants ' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
