A Woman Clothed With Strength and Honour
31:1 The words of king Lemuel (Solomon), the prophecy that his (Virgo -- Bathsheba) mother taught him..
2 What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my (red radius) vows?
3 Give not thy strength unto (Germini) women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth (Gemini) kings.
4 It is not for (Gemini) kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink (solar golden) wine; nor for princes strong drink:
5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.
6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.
7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.
8 Open thy (lunar) mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.
9 Open thy (lunar) mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
10 Who can find a virtuous (capable) (Virgo) woman? for her price is far above (red radius) rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh (lunar) wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her (Virgo) hands.
14 She is like the (Argo) merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet (black zodiac) night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her (Gemini) maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a (solar and lunar grape) (red radius) vineyard.
17 She girdeth her (purple radius) loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her (purple radius) candle goeth not out by (black zodiac) night.
19 She layeth her hands to the (solar) spindle, and her hands hold the (lunar) distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her (solar gold coin) hand to the (Argo) poor; yea, she reacheth forth her (lunar and solar) hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the (lunar) snow for her (Gemini) household: for all her household are clothed with (red radius) scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and (purple radius) purple.
23 Her (Argo) husband is known in the (solar golden) gates, when he sitteth among the (Gemini) elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine (lunar white) linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her (lunar) mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the (solar) bread of idleness.
28 Her (Gemini) children arise up, and (red radius) call her blessed; her husband also, and he (red radius) praiseth her.
29 Many (Gemini) daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be (red radius) praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the (solar golden) gates.
