10 Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubies.
So he will have no lack of gain.
All the days of her life.
And willingly works with her hands.
She brings her food from afar.
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
And strengthens her arms.
And her lamp does not go out by night.
And her hand holds the spindle.
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
When he sits among the elders of the land.
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
She shall rejoice in time to come.
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her husband also, and he praises her:
But you excel them all.”
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
And let her own works praise her in the gates.
