and reaches out her hand to the needy.

31:21 She is not 3  afraid of the snow 4  for her household,

for all of her household are clothed with scarlet. 5 

31:22 She makes for herself coverlets; 6 

her clothing is fine linen and purple. 7 

31:23 Her husband is well-known 8  in the city gate 9 

when he sits with the elders 10  of the land.

31:24 She makes linen garments 11  and sells them,

and supplies the merchants 12  with sashes.

31:25 She is clothed 13  with strength 14  and honor, 15 

and she can laugh 16  at the time 17  to come.

31:26 She opens her mouth 18  with wisdom,

and loving instruction 19  is on her tongue.

31:27 She watches over 20  the ways of her household,

and does not eat the bread of idleness. 21
