Proverbs 31:4 - 31:7

It is not for kings, O Lemuel,
It is not for kings to drink wine,
Or for rulers to desire strong drink,
Lest he drink and forget what is decreed,
And pervert the justice of all the afflicted.
Give strong drink to him who is perishing,
And wine to those whose soul is bitter.
Let him drink and forget his poverty
And he will not remember his trouble any longer.
