Mostly known as the Proverb of the “Virtuous” wife proverbs 31 is that and also much much more. The name, Lemuel means in hebrew belonging or devoted to GOD. We can then say this proverb is an instruction for those that are Holy (set apart) much like the articles in the tabernacle [Holy Place, Holy of Holies]. This proverb is a challenge and a charge to “The Church” the “Bride” of Christ Jesus.
Firstly, to not be given to worldly passions and desires. Then to be of clear and sober mind; knowing WHO we are in CHRIST [Kings and Priests and joint Heirs], not given to substances that dull our senses. To DEFEND those that are defenseless (the unborn, little children, poor, the oppressed, the widow). To STAND and contend for Righteousness!
Secondly, this proverb for verses 10-31, just like Psalms 119 are an acrostic (22 letters of Hebrew alphabet). Signifying again that the WORD must become flesh, that is we “the church” must be His representatives in the earth. Faithfully executing our duties to which we pledged our allegiance and obedience to.
