Bible: Proverbs 31:23-31

31:23 Her husband is well-known 1  in the city gate 2 

when he sits with the elders 3  of the land.

31:24 She makes linen garments 4  and sells them,

and supplies the merchants 5  with sashes.

31:25 She is clothed 6  with strength 7  and honor, 8 

and she can laugh 9  at the time 10  to come.

31:26 She opens her mouth 11  with wisdom,

and loving instruction 12  is on her tongue.

31:27 She watches over 13  the ways of her household,

and does not eat the bread of idleness. 14 

31:28 Her children rise up 15  and call her blessed,

her husband 16  also praises her:

31:29Many 17  daughters 18  have done valiantly, 19 

but you surpass them all!

31:30 Charm is deceitful 20  and beauty is fleeting, 21 

but a woman who fears the Lord 22  will be praised.

31:31 Give 23  her credit for what she has accomplished, 24 

and let her works praise her 25  in the city gates. 26
