A Mulher Virtuosa
A virtuous woman, is the crown of her husband, but, a veritable decay in his bones, is she that causeth shame.
10 A virtuous woman, who can find? for, far beyond corals, is her worth.
11 The heart of her husband, trusteth her, and, gain, he shall not lack:
12 She doeth him good and not evil, all the days of her life:
13 She seeketh wool and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands:
14 She is like the ships of the merchant, from afar, she bringeth in her food;
15 And she riseth, while yet it is night, and giveth food to her household, and a task to her maidens:
16 She considereth a field, and procureth it, Out of the fruit of her hands, she planteth a vineyard:
17 She girdeth, with strength her loins, and putteth vigour into her arms:
18 She tasteth, whether, good, be her merchandise, and her lamp, goeth not out by night:
19 Her hands, she putteth forth to the distaff, and, her palms, lay hold of the spindle:
20 Her palm, she spreadeth out to the oppressed, and, her hands, she extendeth to the needy:
Every, wise woman, buildeth up her house, but, a foolish one, with her own hands, would break it down.
In the same way, that, the women, in seemly attire, with modesty and sober-mindedness, be adorning themselves,not with plaitings and ornamentation of gold, or with pearls, or with costly apparel,
But, which becometh women promising godliness, through means of good works.
Aged women, in the same way, in deportment, as becometh sacred persons, not given to intrigue, nor yet, to much wine, enslaved, teachers of virtue,
That they may constrain the young women to be, lovers of their husbands, lovers of their children,
soberminded, chaste, workers at home, good, submitting themselves to their own husbands,that, the word of God, be not defamed;
House and substance, are an inheritance from ones fathers, but, from Yahweh, cometh a wife who is prudent.
Deceitful is loveliness and vain is beauty, The woman that revereth Yahweh, she, shall be praised:
Now, therefore, my daughter, do not fear, whatsoever thou shalt say, I will do for thee,for all the gate of my people doth know, that, a virtuous woman, thou art.
