    SEV Biblia, Chapter 31:8

    Abre tu boca por el mudo, en el juicio de todos los hijos de muerte.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 31:8

    Verse 8. Open thy mouth for the
    dumb ] For such accused persons as have no counsellors, and cannot plead for themselves.

    Are appointed to destruction. ] Pwlj ynb beney chaloph, variously translated, children of passage-indigent travelers; children of desolation - those who have no possessions, or orphans. I believe it either signifies those who are strangers, and are travelling from place to place, or those who are ready to perish in consequence of want or oppression.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 8. Open thy mouth for the dumb , etc.] Not who are naturally so, but who cannot speak in their own behalf, either through want of elocution, or knowledge of the laws; or who are bashful, timorous, and fearful, being overawed by the majesty of a court of judicature, or by their prosecutors; or who, as they have not a tongue, so not a purse, to speak for them, the fatherless and the widow; which latter has her name, in the Hebrew language, from dumbness. Here Lemuel’s mother advises him to open his mouth freely, readily, boldly, and intrepidly, and plead for such persons.

    Even in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction ; whose destruction is resolved on by their accusers and prosecutors; and who are in danger of it, being charged with capital crimes; unless some persons of wisdom, power, and authority, interpose on their behalf. It may be rendered, “in the cause of all the children of change”, or “passing away” f934 ; the children of the world, which passeth away with all things in it, as Kimchi; or orphans, whose help passeth away, as Jarchi; or rather strangers, as others, who pass from place to place and whose state and condition is liable to many changes who may be ignorant of the laws of the country where they are, and may stand in need of persons to plead for them.


    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.
