020:031:001
The words of king Lemuel,
the prophecy that his mother taught him.


020:031:002
What,
my son?
and what,
the son of my womb?
and what,
the son of my vows?


020:031:003
Give not thy strength unto women,
nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.


020:031:004
It is not for kings,
O Lemuel,
it is not for kings to drink wine;
nor for princes strong drink:


020:031:005
Lest they drink,
and forget the law,
and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.


020:031:006
Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish,
and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.


020:031:007
Let him drink,
and forget his poverty,
and remember his misery no more.


020:031:008
Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.


020:031:009
Open thy mouth,
judge righteously,
and plead the cause of the poor and needy.


020:031:010
Who can find a virtuous woman?
for her price is far above rubies.


020:031:011
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,
so that he shall have no need of spoil.


020:031:012
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.


020:031:013
She seeketh wool,
and flax,
and worketh willingly with her hands.


020:031:014
She is like the merchants' ships;
she bringeth her food from afar.


020:031:015
She riseth also while it is yet night,
and giveth meat to her household,
and a portion to her maidens.


020:031:016
She considereth a field,
and buyeth it:
with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.


020:031:017
She girdeth her loins with strength,
and strengtheneth her arms.


020:031:018
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good:
her candle goeth not out by night.


020:031:019
She layeth her hands to the spindle,
and her hands hold the distaff.


020:031:020
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor;
yea,
she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.


020:031:021
She is not afraid of the snow for her household:
for all her household are clothed with scarlet.


020:031:022
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry;
her clothing is silk and purple.


020:031:023
Her husband is known in the gates,
when he sitteth among the elders of the land.


020:031:024
She maketh fine linen,
and selleth it;
and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.


020:031:025
Strength and honour are her clothing;
and she shall rejoice in time to come.


020:031:026
She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.


020:031:027
She looketh well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.


020:031:028
Her children arise up,
and call her blessed;
her husband also,
and he praiseth her.


020:031:029
Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.


020:031:030
Favour is deceitful,
and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the LORD,
she shall be praised.


020:031:031
Give her of the fruit of her hands;
and let her own works praise her in the gates.
