1The wordes of King Lemuel, the prophecie that his mother taught him. 2What, my sonne! and what, the sonne of my wombe! and what, the sonne of my vowes! 3Giue not thy strength vnto women, nor thy wayes to that which destroyeth kings.4It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drinke wine, nor for Princes, strong drinke: 5Lest they drinke, and forget the Law, and peruert the iudgement of any of the afflicted.
