Who can find a virtuous woman like me??
My husband puts his confidence in me, and he will never be poor!
As long as I live, I do him good and never harm.
I keep myself busy making wool and linen cloth.
I bring home food from out-of-the-way places, as merchant ships do.
I get up before daylight to prepare food for my family, and to tell my servant women what to do.
I look at land and buy it, and with money I have earned I plant a vineyard.
I am a hard worker, strong and industrious.
I know the value of everything I make, and work late into the night.
I spin my own thread and weave my own cloth.
I don't worry when it snows, because my family has warm clothing.
I make bedspreads and wear clothes of fine purple linen.
My husband is well known, one of the leading citizens.
I make clothes and belts, and sell them to merchants.
.I am strong and respected and not afraid of the future.
I speak with a gentle wisdom.
I am always busy and look after my family's needs.
My children show their appreciation, and my husband praises me!
Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honors the Lord should be praised.
Give her credit for all she does. She deserves the respect of everyone!
