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.
15 kShe also rises while it is yet night,
And lprovides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
From 5her profits she plants a vineyard.
And strengthens her arms.
And her lamp does not go out by night.
And her hand holds the spindle.
20 mShe extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 nHer husband is known in the gates,
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.
Lit. a wife of valor, in the sense of all forms of excellence
Lit. the fruit of her hands
