Proverbs 31

  1 H1697 The words H4428 of king H3927 Lemuel, H4853 the prophecy H517 that his mother H3256 [H8765] taught him.
  2 H1248 What, my son? H1248 and what, the son H990 of my womb? H1248 and what, the son H5088 of my vows?
  3 H5414 [H8799] Give H2428 not thy strength H802 to women, H1870 nor thy ways H4229 [H8687] to that which wipeth out H4428 kings.
  4 H4428 It is not for kings, H3927 O Lemuel, H4428 it is not for kings H8354 [H8800] to drink H3196 wine; H335 H176 [H8675] nor for H7336 [H8802] princes H7941 strong drink:
  5 H8354 [H8799] Lest they drink, H7911 [H8799] and forget H2710 [H8794] the decree, H8138 [H8762] and pervert H1779 the judgment H1121 H6040 of any of the depressed.
  6 H5414 [H8798] Give H7941 strong drink H6 [H8802] to him that is ready to perish, H3196 and wine H4751 to those that are bitter H5315 in breath.
  7 H8354 [H8799] Let him drink, H7911 [H8799] and forget H7389 his poverty, H2142 [H8799] and remember H5999 his misery no more.
  8 H6605 [H8798] Open H6310 thy mouth H483 for the dumb H1779 in the cause H1121 of all the sons H2475 of the surviving.
  9 H6605 [H8798] Open H6310 thy mouth, H8199 [H8798] judge H6664 righteously, H1777 [H8798] and plead H6041 the cause of the poor H34 and needy.
  10 H4672 [H8799] Who can find H2428 a virtuous H802 woman? H4377 for her price H7350 is far H6443 above rubies.
  11 H3820 The heart H1167 of her husband H982 [H8804] doth safely trust H2637 [H8799] in her, so that he shall have no need H7998 of spoil.
  12 H1580 [H8804] She will do H2896 him good H7451 and not evil H3117 all the days H2416 of her life.
  13 H1875 [H8804] She seeketh H6785 wool, H6593 and flax, H6213 [H8799] and worketh H2656 willingly H3709 with her palms.
  14 H5503 [H8802] She is like the merchant H591 ships; H935 [H8686] she bringeth H3899 her food H4801 from afar.
  15 H6965 [H8799] She riseth H3915 also while it is yet night, H5414 [H8799] and giveth H2964 food H1004 to her household, H2706 and a portion H5291 to her damsels.
  16 H2161 [H8804] She considereth H7704 a field, H3947 [H8799] and buyeth H6529 it: with the fruit H3709 of her palms H5193 [H8804] she planteth H3754 a vineyard.
  17 H2296 [H8804] She girdeth H4975 her loins H5797 with strength, H553 [H8762] and strengtheneth H2220 her arms.
  18 H2938 [H8804] She perceiveth H5504 that her merchandise H2896 is good: H5216 her lamp H3518 [H8799] goeth not out H3915 by night.
  19 H7971 [H8765] She layeth H3027 her hands H3601 to the spindle, H3709 and her palms H8551 [H8804] hold H6418 the distaff.
  20 H6566 [H8804] She stretcheth out H3709 her palm H6041 to the poor; H7971 [H8765] yea, she reacheth forth H3027 her hands H34 to the needy.
  21 H3372 [H8799] She is not afraid H7950 of the snow H1004 for her household: H1004 for all her household H3847 [H8803] are clothed H8144 with scarlet.
  22 H6213 [H8804] She maketh H4765 herself coverings of tapestry; H3830 her clothing H8336 is silk H713 and purple.
  23 H1167 Her husband H3045 [H8737] is known H8179 in the gates, H3427 [H8800] when he sitteth H2205 among the elders H776 of the land.
  24 H6213 [H8804] She maketh H5466 fine linen, H9001 and H4376 [H8799] selleth it; H9002 and H5414 [H8804] giveth H2289 waistbands H9005 to H3669 the merchant.
  25 H5797 Strength H1926 and honour H3830 are her clothing; H7832 [H8799] and she laugheth H314 at the latter H3117 day.
  26 H6605 [H8804] She openeth H6310 her mouth H2451 with wisdom; H3956 and on her tongue H8451 is the law H2617 of mercy.
  27 H6822 [H8802] She looketh well H1979 H1979 [H8675] to the ways H1004 of her household, H398 [H8799] and eateth H3899 not the bread H6104 of idleness.
  28 H1121 Her sons H6965 [H8804] rise up, H833 [H8762] and call her blessed; H1167 her husband H1984 [H8762] also, and he praiseth her.
  29 H7227 Many H1323 daughters H6213 [H8804] have done H2428 virtuously, H5927 [H8804] but thou excellest them all.
  30 H2580 Favour H8267 is deceitful, H3308 and beauty H1892 is vain: H802 but a woman H3373 that feareth H3068 the LORD, H1984 [H8691] she shall be praised.
  31 H5414 [H8798] Give H6529 her of the fruit H3027 of her hands; H4639 and let her own works H1984 [H8762] praise H8179 her in the gates.
