A friend loves at all times; and a brother is born for adversity.
Be wise, my son,
and bring joy to my heart,
then I can answer my tormentor.
restraining her is like restraining the wind,
or like grasping oil in his right hand.
Don’t give your strength to women,
nor your ways to that which destroys kings.
It is not for kings, Lemuel;
it is not for kings to drink wine;
nor for princes to say, ‘Where is strong drink?’
"Many women do noble things, but you excel them all."
Seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying, "We will eat our own bread, and wear our own clothing: only let us be called by your name. Take away our reproach."
