10 A capable wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
and he will have no lack of gain.
all the days of her life.
and works with willing hands.
she brings her food from far away.
and provides food for her household
and tasks for her servant-girls.
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
and makes her arms strong.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
and her hands hold the spindle.
and reaches out her hands to the needy.
for all her household are clothed in crimson.
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
taking his seat among the elders of the land.
she supplies the merchant with sashes.
and she laughs at the time to come.
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
her husband too, and he praises her:
but you surpass them all.”
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
and let her works praise her in the city gates.
