(Proverbial) Quote of the Day
King Lemuel is pretty much an unknown figure, but there was no Israeli King by that name...This is an example of God in the Old Testament requiring justice and care for the rights of the poor even from "secular" States:
"The words of King Lemuel. An oracle that his mother taught him:
'No, my son! No, son of my womb!...It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine...or else they will drink and forget what has been decreed, and will pervert the rights of all the afflicted...
Speak out for those who cannot speak,for the rights of all the destitute. Speak out, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.'
-- Proverbs 31
