She watches over the affairs of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.
She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family
She opens her arms to the poor, and extends her hands to the needy.
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
