Proverbs 31

Pro 31:1  The sayings of King Lemuel--an oracle his mother taught him:
Pro 31:2  "O my son, O son of my womb, O son of my vows,
Pro 31:3  do not spend your strength on women, your vigor on those who ruin kings.
Pro 31:4  "It is not for kings, O Lemuel-- not for kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer,
Pro 31:5  lest they drink and forget what the law decrees, and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.
Pro 31:6  Give beer to those who are perishing, wine to those who are in anguish;
Pro 31:7  let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more.
Pro 31:8  "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.
Pro 31:9  Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
Pro 31:10  A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
Pro 31:11  Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
Pro 31:12  She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
Pro 31:13  She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
Pro 31:14  She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
Pro 31:15  She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.
Pro 31:16  She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
Pro 31:17  She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
Pro 31:18  She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.
Pro 31:19  In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
Pro 31:20  She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
Pro 31:21  When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
Pro 31:22  She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
Pro 31:23  Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
Pro 31:24  She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes.
Pro 31:25  She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
Pro 31:26  She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
Pro 31:27  She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Pro 31:28  Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
Pro 31:29  "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."
Pro 31:30  Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Pro 31:31  Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.



Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!
