Book of Proverbs: The How To Guide To Life’s Decisions Series Vol. I
24. Proverbs 31:1-9
From The How To Guide To Life’s Decisions Series
1 The words of King L’mu’el, the prophecy with which his mother disciplined him:
2 No, my son! No, son of my womb! No, son of my vows!
3 Don’t give your strength to women or your ways to that which destroys kings.
4 It is not for kings, L’mu’el, not for kings to drink wine; it is not for rulers to ask, “Where can I find strong liquor?”
5 For they may drink, then forget what has been decreed, and pervert the justice due to the poor.
6 Give strong liquor to one who is perishing, wine to the deeply depressed;
7 let him drink, forget his poverty and cease to remember his troubles.
8 Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves, for the rights of all who need an advocate.
9 Speak up, judge righteously, defend the cause of the poor and the needy.
