Proverbs 31 - NIV

4

It is not for kings, Lemuel—
it is not for kings to drink wine,
not for rulers to crave beer,

5 lest they drink and forget what has been decreed,
and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.

6 Let beer be for those who are perishing,
wine for those who are in anguish!

7 Let them drink and forget their poverty
and remember their misery no more.

8

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.

9 Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.

Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character

10

[a] A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
