Proverbs Chapter 31

, -- , - . 1 The words of king Lemuel; the burden wherewith his mother corrected him.
-, --; , -. 2 What, my son? and what, O son of my womb? and what, O 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 to say: 'Where is strong drink?'
-, ; , --. 5 Lest they drink, and forget that which is decreed, and pervert the justice due to any that is afflicted.
- ; , . 6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto the bitter in soul;
, ; , -. 7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. {P}
- ; -, - . 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. {P}
-, ; . 10 A woman of valour who can find? for her price is far above rubies.
, ; , . 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, and he hath no lack of gain.
--- , . 12 She doeth him good and not evil all the days of her life.
, ; , . 13 She seeketh wool and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
, ; , . 14 She is like the merchant-ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
, -- ; , . 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth food to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
, ; , () . 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it; with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
; , . 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and maketh strong her arms.
, - ; - () . 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good; her lamp goeth not out by night.
, ; , . 19 She layeth her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle.
, ; , . 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
- : -, . 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
-; . 22 She maketh for herself coverlets; her clothing is fine linen and purple.
; , --. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
, ; , . 24 She maketh linen garments and selleth them; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
- ; , . 25 Strength and dignity are her clothing; and she laugheth at the time to come.
, ; , -. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and the law of kindness is on her tongue.
, () ; , . 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
, ; , . 28 Her children rise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her:
, ; , -. 29 'Many daughters have done valiantly, but thou excellest them all.'
, : -, . 30 Grace is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
-, ; . {} 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her works praise her in the gates. {P}
