O Papel da Mulher
10 Who can find a virtuous woman: for far above pearls is her value.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, and he will not see his gain diminish.
12 She treateth him well and not ill, all the days of her life.
24 Fine tunics she maketh, and selleth them, and girdles she furnisheth unto the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing: and she smileth at the coming of the last day.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom, and the law of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and the bread of idleness she doth not eat.
13 She seeketh for wool and flax, and worketh with her willing hands.
14 She is become like the merchants ships: from afar doth she bring her food.
15 And she riseth while it is yet night, and giveth provision to her household, and a task to her maidens.
16 She thinketh of a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth with strength her loins, and giveth vigor to her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her profit is good: therefore her lamp goeth not out by night.
19 She stretcheth out her hands to the spindle, and her palms hold fast the distaff.
20 She spreadeth out wide her open palm to the poor: yea, her hands she stretcheth forth to the needy.
The wise among women buildeth her house; but the foolish pulleth it down with her own hands.
And God created man in his image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy pain and the suffering of thy conception; in pain shalt thou bring forth children; and for thy husband shall be thy desire, but he shall rule over thee.
Hear, my son, the instruction of thy father, and cast not off the teaching of thy mother;
And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help suitable for him.
