Book of Proverbs Chapter 31

PROVERBS 31:1 The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.

PROVERBS 31:2 What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?

PROVERBS 31:3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

PROVERBS 31:4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

PROVERBS 31:5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.

PROVERBS 31:6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

PROVERBS 31:7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.

PROVERBS 31:8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.

PROVERBS 31:9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

PROVERBS 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

PROVERBS 31:11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

PROVERBS 31:12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

PROVERBS 31:13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

PROVERBS 31:14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

PROVERBS 31:15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

PROVERBS 31:16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

PROVERBS 31:17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

PROVERBS 31:18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

PROVERBS 31:19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

PROVERBS 31:20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

PROVERBS 31:21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

PROVERBS 31:22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

PROVERBS 31:23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

PROVERBS 31:24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

PROVERBS 31:25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

PROVERBS 31:26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

PROVERBS 31:27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

PROVERBS 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

PROVERBS 31:29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

PROVERBS 31:30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

PROVERBS 31:31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
