Proverbs 31

The words
<01697>
of king
<04428>
Lemuel
<03927>_,
the prophecy
<04853>
that his mother
<0517>
taught
<03256> (8765)
him.
What, my son
<01248>_?
and what, the son
<01248>
of my womb
<0990>_?
and what, the son
<01248>
of my vows
<05088>_?
Give
<05414> (8799)
not thy strength
<02428>
unto women
<0802>_,
nor thy ways
<01870>
to that which destroyeth
<04229> (8687)
kings
<04428>_.
[It is] not for kings
<04428>_,
O Lemuel
<03927>_,
[it is] not for kings
<04428>
to drink
<08354> (8800)
wine
<03196>_;
nor for
<0335> (8675) <0176>
princes
<07336> (8802)
strong drink
<07941>_:
Lest they drink
<08354> (8799)_,
and forget
<07911> (8799)
the law
<02710> (8794)_,
and pervert
<08138> (8762)
the judgment
<01779>
of any of the afflicted
<01121> <06040>_.
{prevert: Heb. alter} {of any...: Heb. of all the sons of affliction}
Give
<05414> (8798)
strong drink
<07941>
unto him that is ready to perish
<06> (8802)_,
and wine
<03196>
unto those that be of heavy
<04751>
hearts
<05315>_.
{of...: Heb. bitter of soul}
Let him drink
<08354> (8799)_,
and forget
<07911> (8799)
his poverty
<07389>_,
and remember
<02142> (8799)
his misery
<05999>
no more.
Open
<06605> (8798)
thy mouth
<06310>
for the dumb
<0483>
in the cause
<01779>
of all such as are appointed
<01121>
to destruction
<02475>_.
{such...: Heb. the sons of destruction}
Open
<06605> (8798)
thy mouth
<06310>_,
judge
<08199> (8798)
righteously
<06664>_,
and plead
<01777> (8798)
the cause of the poor
<06041>
and needy
<034>_.
Who can find
<04672> (8799)
a virtuous
<02428>
woman
<0802>_?
for her price
<04377>
[is] far
<07350>
above rubies
<06443>_.
The heart
<03820>
of her husband
<01167>
doth safely trust
<0982> (8804)
in her, so that he shall have no need
<02637> (8799)
of spoil
<07998>_.
She will do
<01580> (8804)
him good
<02896>
and not evil
<07451>
all the days
<03117>
of her life
<02416>_.
She seeketh
<01875> (8804)
wool
<06785>_,
and flax
<06593>_,
and worketh
<06213> (8799)
willingly
<02656>
with her hands
<03709>_.
She is like the merchants
<05503> (8802)_'
ships
<0591>_;
she bringeth
<0935> (8686)
her food
<03899>
from afar
<04801>_.
She riseth
<06965> (8799)
also while it is yet night
<03915>_,
and giveth
<05414> (8799)
meat
<02964>
to her household
<01004>_,
and a portion
<02706>
to her maidens
<05291>_.
She considereth
<02161> (8804)
a field
<07704>_,
and buyeth
<03947> (8799)
it: with the fruit
<06529>
of her hands
<03709>
she planteth
<05193> (8804)
a vineyard
<03754>_.
{buyeth: Heb. taketh}
She girdeth
<02296> (8804)
her loins
<04975>
with strength
<05797>_,
and strengtheneth
<0553> (8762)
her arms
<02220>_.
She perceiveth
<02938> (8804)
that her merchandise
<05504>
[is] good
<02896>_:
her candle
<05216>
goeth not out
<03518> (8799)
by night
<03915>_.
{She...: Heb. She tasteth}
She layeth
<07971> (8765)
her hands
<03027>
to the spindle
<03601>_,
and her hands
<03709>
hold
<08551> (8804)
the distaff
<06418>_.
She stretcheth out
<06566> (8804)
her hand
<03709>
to the poor
<06041>_;
yea, she reacheth forth
<07971> (8765)
her hands
<03027>
to the needy
<034>_.
{She...: Heb. She spreadeth}
She is not afraid
<03372> (8799)
of the snow
<07950>
for her household
<01004>_:
for all her household
<01004>
[are] clothed
<03847> (8803)
with scarlet
<08144>_.
{scarlet: or, double garments}
She maketh
<06213> (8804)
herself coverings of tapestry
<04765>_;
her clothing
<03830>
[is] silk
<08336>
and purple
<0713>_.
Her husband
<01167>
is known
<03045> (8737)
in the gates
<08179>_,
when he sitteth
<03427> (8800)
among the elders
<02205>
of the land
<0776>_.
She maketh
<06213> (8804)
fine linen
<05466>_,
and selleth
<04376> (8799)
[it]; and delivereth
<05414> (8804)
girdles
<02289>
unto the merchant
<03669>_.
Strength
<05797>
and honour
<01926>
[are] her clothing
<03830>_;
and she shall rejoice
<07832> (8799)
in time
<03117>
to come
<0314>_.
She openeth
<06605> (8804)
her mouth
<06310>
with wisdom
<02451>_;
and in her tongue
<03956>
[is] the law
<08451>
of kindness
<02617>_.
She looketh well
<06822> (8802)
to the ways
<01979> (8675) <01979>
of her household
<01004>_,
and eateth
<0398> (8799)
not the bread
<03899>
of idleness
<06104>_.
Her children
<01121>
arise up
<06965> (8804)_,
and call her blessed
<0833> (8762)_;
her husband
<01167>
[also], and he praiseth
<01984> (8762)
her.
Many
<07227>
daughters
<01323>
have done
<06213> (8804)
virtuously
<02428>_,
but thou excellest
<05927> (8804)
them all. {have...: or, have gotten riches}
Favour
<02580>
[is] deceitful
<08267>_,
and beauty
<03308>
[is] vain
<01892>_:
[but] a woman
<0802>
[that] feareth
<03373>
the LORD
<03068>_,
she shall be praised
<01984> (8691)_.
Give
<05414> (8798)
her of the fruit
<06529>
of her hands
<03027>_;
and let her own works
<04639>
praise
<01984> (8762)
her in the gates
<08179>_.
