Proverbs 31:4-7 World English Bible (WEB)

It is not for kings, Lemuel;
    it is not for kings to drink wine;
    nor for princes to say, ‘Where is strong drink?’
lest they drink, and forget the law,
    and pervert the justice due to anyone who is afflicted.
Give strong drink to him who is ready to perish;
    and wine to the bitter in soul:
Let him drink, and forget his poverty,
    and remember his misery no more.

Proverbs 31:4-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

It is not for kings, O Lemuel,
It is not for kings to drink wine,
Or for rulers to desire strong drink,
For they will drink and forget what is decreed,
And pervert the [a]rights of all the [b]afflicted.
Give strong drink to him who is perishing,
And wine to him [c]whose life is bitter.
Let him drink and forget his poverty
And remember his trouble no more.
