I have found one man among a thousand, but I have not found a woman among all these. He who finds a wife finds a good thing And obtains favor from the Lord. House and wealth are an inheritance from fathers, But a prudent wife is from the Lord. An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels. She does him good and not evil All the days of her life.
She rises also while it is still night And gives food to her household And portions to her maidens. She considers a field and buys it; From her earnings she plants a vineyard. An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, But she who shames him is like rottenness in his bones. Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the Lordshe shall be praised. The woman of folly is boisterous, She is naive and knows nothing.
