    King James Bible - Proverbs 31:2

    What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?

    World English Bible

    "Oh, my son! Oh, son of my womb! Oh, son of my vows!

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 31:2

    What, O my beloved, what, O the beloved of my womb, what, O the beloved of my vows?

    Webster's Bible Translation

    What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?

    Original Hebrew

    מה
    4100 ברי 1248 ומה 4100 בר 1248 בטני 990 ומה 4100 בר 1248 נדרי׃ 5088

    Isa 49:15

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 31:2

    ¿Qu, hijo mío? ¿Y qu, hijo de mi vientre? ¿Y qu, hijo de mis deseos?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 31:2

    Verse 2. What, my son? ] The Chaldee rb
    bar is used twice in this verse, instead of the Hebrew b ben, son. This verse is very elliptical; and commentators, according to their different tastes, have inserted words, indeed some of them a whole sentence, to make up the sense. Perhaps Coverdale has hit the sense as nearly as any other: "These are the wordes of Kynge Lemuel; and the lesson that his mother taughte him. My sonne, thou son of my body, O my deare beloved sonne!" The son of my vows? - A child born after vows made for offsprings is called the child of a person's vows.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. What, my son ? etc.] What shall I call thee? though thou
    art a king, can I address thee in more suitable language, or use a more endearing appellative than this, and what follows? permit me, thy mother, to speak unto thee as my son: and what shall I say to thee? I want words, I want wisdom; O that I knew what to say to thee, that would be proper and profitable; or what is it I am about to say to thee? things of the greatest moment and importance, and therefore listen to me; and so the manner of speaking is designed to excite attention: or what shall I ask of thee? no part of thy kingdom, or any share in the government of it; only this favour, to avoid the sins unbecoming a prince, and to do the duty of a king, later mentioned. The Targum and Syriac version represent her as exclaiming, reproving, and threatening; as, Alas my son! is this the life thou designest to live, to give up thyself to wine and women? fie upon it, my son, is this becoming thy birth, education, and dignity? is this the fruit of all the pains I have taken in bringing thee up? consider the unbecoming part thou art acting; and what, the son of my womb ? whom I bore in sorrow, brought forth in pain, and took so much care and trouble to bring up in a religious way, and form for usefulness in church and state? not an adopted son, but my own flesh and blood; and therefore what I say must be thought to proceed from pure affection to thee, and solely for thy good; see ( Isaiah 49:15); and what, the son of my vows ? whom I asked of God, and promised to give up to him again, and did; for which reason she might call him Lemuel, as Hannah called her son Samuel, for a like reason, ( 1 Samuel 1:28); a son for whom she had put up many prayers, for his temporal and spiritual good; and on whose account she had made many vows, promises, and resolutions, that she would do so and so, should she be so happy as to bring him into the world, and bring him up to mans estate, and see him settled on the throne of Israel.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-9 - When
    children are under the mother's eye, she has an opportunity of fashioning their minds aright. Those who are grown up, should ofte call to mind the good teaching they received when children. The man awful instances of promising characters who have been ruined by vil women, and love of wine, should warn every one to avoid these evils Wine is to be used for want or medicine. Every creature of God is good and wine, though abused, has its use. By the same rule, due praise an consolation should be used as cordials to the dejected and tempted, no administered to the confident and self-sufficient. All in authorit should be more carefully temperate even than other men; and should be protectors of those who are unable or afraid to plead their own cause Our blessed Lord did not decline the bitterest dregs of the cup of sorrow put into his hands; but he puts the cup of consolation into the hands of his people, and causes those to rejoice who are in the deepes distress.
