Being an excellent wife - The 'She' I wish to be


An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewel.
* The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
* She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.
* She looks for wool and flax and works with her hands in delight.
* She is like merchant ships; She brings her food from afar.
* She rises also while it is still night and gives food to her household and portions to her maidens.
* She considers a field and buys it; From her earnings she plants a vineyard.
* She girds herself with strength and makes her arms strong.
* She senses that her gain is good; Her lamp does not go out at night.
* She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hands grasp the spindle.
* She extends her hand to the poor, and she stretches out her hands to the needy.
* She is not afraid of the snow for her household, for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
* She makes coverings for herself; 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, and supplies belts to the tradesmen. 
* Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future.
* She opens her mouth in 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 bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her, saying: "Many daughters have done nobly, But you excel them all." Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her the product of her hands, And let her works praise her in the gates. 
~ Holy Bible
