- The words of Lemuel, king of Massa, which his mother taught him:
- What, my son? What, son of my womb? What, son of my vows?
- Give not your strength to women, your ways to those who destroy kings.
- It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, or for rulers to desire strong drink;
- lest they drink and forget what has been decreed, and pervert the rights of all the afflicted.
- Give strong drink to him who is perishing, and wine to those in bitter distress;
- let them drink and forget their poverty, and remember their misery no more.
- Open your mouth for the dumb, for the rights of all who are left desolate.
- Open your mouth, judge righteously, maintain the rights of the poor and needy.
- A good wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
- The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
- She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.
- She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands.
- She is like the ships of the merchant, she brings her food from afar.
- She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and tasks for her maidens.
- She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
- She girds her loins with strength and makes her arms strong.
- She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night.
- She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle.
- She opens her hand to the poor, and reaches out her hands to the needy.
- She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
- She makes herself coverings; her clothing is fine linen and purple.
- Her husband is known in the gates, when he sits among the elders of the land.
- She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers girdles to the merchant.
- Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
- She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
- She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.
- Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
- "Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all."
- Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
- Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
