The Words of Lemuel1The words of King Lemuel, the ▼
▼ Or burdenoracle which his mother taught him: 2What, O my son?
And what, O b son of my womb?
And what, O son of my c vows?
3 d Do not give your strength to women,
Or your ways to that which e destroys kings.
4It is not for f kings, O Lemuel,
It is not for kings to g drink wine,
Or for rulers to desire strong drink,
5For they will drink and forget what is decreed,
And h pervert the ▼
▼ Lit judgmentrights of all the ▼
▼ Lit sons of afflictionafflicted.
6Give strong drink to him who is k perishing,
And wine to him ▼
▼ Lit bitter of soul, m whose life is bitter.
7Let him drink and forget his poverty
And remember his trouble no more.
8 n Open your mouth for the mute,
For the ▼
▼ Lit judgmentrights of all the ▼
▼ Lit sons of passing awayunfortunate.
9Open your mouth q judge righteously,
▼ Lit judge the afflicteddefend the s rights of the afflicted and needy.
