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.
3 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,
4 That they may constrain the young women to be, lovers of their husbands, lovers of their children,
5 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.
