    The Words And Sayings Of King Lemuel And His Mother


    Proverbs Chapter 31 • Daily Reading by Pastor Chopper Ward


    Proverbs 31
    King James Version

    1
    The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.

    2 What, my son?
    and what, the son of my womb?
    and what, the 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 strong drink:​
    5 Lest they drink, and forget the law,
    and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.​
    6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish,
    and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.​
    7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty,
    and remember his misery no more.​

    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.​

    The Virtuous Wife

    10
    Who can find a virtuous woman?
    for her price is far above rubies.​
    11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,
    so that he shall have no need of spoil.​
    12 She will do 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 merchants' ships;
    she bringeth her food from afar.​
    15 She riseth also while it is yet night,
    and giveth meat 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 strengtheneth her arms.​
    18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good:
    her candle goeth not out by night.​
    19 She layeth her hands to the spindle,
    and her hands hold the distaff.​
    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 herself coverings of tapestry;
    her clothing is silk and purple.​
    23 Her husband is known in the gates,
    when he sitteth among the elders of the land.​
    24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it;
    and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.​
    25 Strength and honour are her clothing;
    and she shall rejoice in time to come.​
    26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
    and in her tongue is the law of kindness.​
    27 She looketh well to the ways of her household,
    and eateth not the bread of idleness.​
    28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praiseth her.​
    29 Many daughters have done virtuously,
    but thou excellest them all.​
    30 Favour 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 own works praise her in the gates.

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
