13 She xseeketh wool, and flax,
And worketh willingly with her hands.
She bringeth her food from afar.
15 yShe riseth also while it is yet night,
And zgiveth meat to her household,
And aa portion to her maidens.
With the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
And strengtheneth her arms.
18 †She perceiveth that her merchandise is good:
Her dcandle goeth not out by night.
And her hands hold the edistaff.
Yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the gneedy.
22 She maketh herself icoverings of tapestry;
nWhen he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh ofine linen, and selleth it;
And delivereth girdles unto the pmerchant.
25 qStrength and honour are her clothing;
And rshe shall rejoice in time to come.
And in her tongue is the law of kindness.
And eateth not the bread of idleness.
