Speak out (Prov 31:8-31:9)

“Speak out

For those who cannot speak.

Speak out

For the rights of all the destitute.

Speak out!

Judge righteously!

Defend the rights of the poor!

Defend the rights of the needy!”

This motherly advice ends on a strong call to speak out for those who cannot speak, the voiceless. Speak out for the destitute. The king was to judge righteously. He was to defend the rights of the poor and the needy.
