Proverbs 31:1-9 KJV

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.
