Proverbs 31:4-7

4-7"Leaders can't afford to make fools of themselves,

gulping wine and swilling beer,

Lest, hung over, they don't know right from wrong,

and the people who depend on them are hurt.

Use wine and beer only as sedatives,

to kill the pain and dull the ache

Of the terminally ill,

for whom life is a living death.

8-9"Speak up for the people who have no voice,

for the rights of all the down-and-outers.

Speak out for justice!

Stand up for the poor and destitute!"
