For her worth is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
And strengthens her arms.
And her lamp does not go out by night.
She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes tapestry 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.
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
She shall rejoice in time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her husband also, and he praises her:
But you excel them all.”
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.
