WOMAN


Her character as a wife:

An excellent wife, who can find?

For her worth is far above jewels.

 her heart of her husband trusts in her,

And he will have no lack of gain.

 She does him good and not evil

All the days of her life

 

Her devotion as a Homemaker:

She looks for wool and flax

And works with her hands in delight.

 She is like merchant ships;

She brings her food from afar.

 She rises also while it is still night

And gives food to her household

 And portions to her maidens.

She considers a field and buys it;

From her earnings she plants a vineyard.

 She girds herself with strength

And makes her arms strong.

She senses that her gain is good;

Her lamp does not go out at night.

 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,

And her hands grasp the spindle.

 

 Her Generosity as a Neighbor:

She extends her hand to the poor,

And she stretches out her hands to the needy.

 

Her Devotion as a Homemaker:

She is not afraid of the snow for her household,

For all her household are clothed with scarlet.

She makes coverings for herself;

Her clothing is fine linen and purple.

 

Her husband is known in the gates,

When he sits among the elders of the land.

She makes linen garments and sells them,

And supplies belts to the tradesmen.

 

Her Influence as a Teacher: 

Strength and dignity are her clothing,

And she smiles at the future.

She opens her mouth in wisdom,

And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

 

Her Effectiveness as a Mother:

She looks well to the ways of her household,

And does not eat the bread of idleness.

 

Her children rise up and bless her;

Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:

Many daughters have done nobly,

But you excel them all.”

 

Her Excellence as a Person:

Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,

But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.

Give her the product of her hands,

And let her works praise her in the gates.

 The Proverbs 31 Woman
