and a tongue-lashing makes it known to all.
taking hold of her is like grasping a scorpion.
she cannot hide her shame.
her eyelids give her away.
or else, when she finds liberty, she will make use of it.
and do not be surprised if she sins against you.
and drinks from any water near him,
so she will sit in front of every tent peg
and open her quiver to the arrow.
13 A wife’s charm delights her husband,
and her skill puts flesh on his bones.
and nothing is so precious as her self-discipline.
and no scales can weigh the value of her chastity.
so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home.
so is a beautiful face on a stately figure.
so are shapely legs and steadfast feet.
