The Capable Wife

How hard it is to find a capable wife. She is worth far more than jewels.

She keeps herself busy making wool and linen cloth.

She is a hard worker, strong and industrious.

She knows the value of everything she makes, and works late into the night.

She spins her own thread and weaves her own cloth.

She doesn’t worry when it snows, because her family has warm clothing.

She makes bedspreads and wears clothes of fine purple linen.

She makes clothes and belts, and sells them to merchants.

She is strong and respected and not afraid of the future.

She speaks with a gentle wisdom.

A woman who honours the Lord should be praised.

Give her credit for all she does, she deserves the respect of everyone.

Proverbs 31: 10-31  (the Good News Bible translation)
