    King James Bible - Proverbs 31:3

    Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

    World English Bible

    Don't give your
    strength to women, nor your ways to that which destroys kings.

    Douay-Rheims - Proverbs 31:3

    women, and thy riches to destroy kings.

    strength to women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

    Original Hebrew

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 31:3

    No des a las mujeres tu fuerza ni tus caminos, que es para destruir los reyes.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 31:3

    Verse 3. Give not thy
    strength ] Do not waste thy substance on women. In such intercourse the strength of body, soul and substance is destroyed. Such connections are those which destroy kings, yklm melachin, the Chaldee termination instead of the Hebrew.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. Give not thy
    strength unto women , etc.] Strength of body, which is weakened by an excessive use of venery with a multiplicity of women; see, ( Proverbs 5:9); and strength of mind, reason, and wisdom, which is impaired by conversation with such persons; whereby time is consumed and lost, which should be spent in the improvement of knowledge: or “thy riches”, as the Septuagint and Arabic versions, thy substance, which harlots devour, and who bring a man to a piece of bread, as the prodigal was, ( Proverbs 6:26 Luke 15:30); and even drain the coffers of kings and princes; nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings ; do not give thy mind to take such courses, and pursue such ways and methods, as bring ruin on kings and kingdoms, as conversation with harlots does; (see Proverbs 7:26).

    Some think the design of this advice is to warn against any ambitious views of enlarging his dominions by invading neighbouring countries, and making war with neighbouring kings, to the ruin of them; but the former sense seems best. The Targum is, “nor thy ways to the daughters of kings.”

    Solomon was given to women, who proved very pernicious to him, ( <111101> Kings 11:1-5). Some render it, “which destroyeth counsel” f919 ; for whoredom weakens the mind as well as the body.


    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.
