10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her,
so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly
with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her
food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth
meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the
fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and
strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her
candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands
hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she
reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household:
for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her
clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth
among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and
delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she
shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her
tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and
eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her
husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou
excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a
woman that feareth the Lord,
she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her
own works praise her in the gates.
Ladies, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!... ; ) ~Philippians 4:13
