A wife of noble character, more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her with great faith. Forever she brings him pleasure, not harm. She is wise in labor, she gets up while it is yet dark providing for her family. She sows her portion and reaps greatly. She works spiritedly and yet her light never goes dim. She is generous to the poor and needy. Her household is clothed with scarlet and she is clothed in purple linen. She is filled with God’s strength and dignity. She speaks only wisdom. She is not idle, always tending to her household. Her family calls her blessed. A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
