The ideal wife of Proverbs 31
She exercised considerable creativity and initiative in far-ranging projects

A good wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.

The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.

She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.

She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands.

She is like the ships of the merchant, she brings her food from afar.

She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and tasks for her maidens.

She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.

She girds her loins with strength and makes her arms strong.

She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.

Her lamp does not go out at night.

She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle.

She opens her hand to the poor, and reaches out her hands to the needy.

She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.

She makes herself coverings; her clothing is fine linen and purple.

Her husband is known in the gates, when he sits among the elders of the land.

She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers girdles to the merchant.

Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.

She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:

"Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all."

Proverbs 31:10-31

When one finds a worthy wife
her value is far beyond pearls.
Her husband, entrusting his heart to her
has an unfailing prize.
She brings him good, and not evil
all the days of her life.
She obtains wool and flax
and makes cloth with skillful hands.
Like merchant ship,
she secures her provisions from afar.
She rises while it is still night,
and distributes food to her household.
She picks out a field to purchase;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She is girt about with strength,
and sturdy are her arms.
She enjoys the success of her dealings;
at night her lamp is undimmed.
She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her fingers to the spindle.
She reaches out her hands to the poor,
and extends her arms to the needy.
She fears not the snow for her household;
all her charges are doubly clothed.
She makes her own coverlets;
fine linen and purple are her clothing.
Her husband is prominent at the city gates
as he sits with the elders of the land.
She makes garments and sells them,
and stocks the merchants with belts.
She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs at the days to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and her tongue is kindly counsel.
Her children rise up and praise her;
her husband, too, extols her:

"Many are the women of proven worth,
But you have excelled them all."

Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting:
the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give her a reward of her labors,
and let her works praise her at the city gates.
