10 Who can find a virtuous woman?
for her price is far above rubies.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night,
and giveth meat to her household,
and a portion to her maidens.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength,
and strengtheneth her arms.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor;
yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry;
her clothing is silk and purple.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing;
and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the Lord,
she shall be praised.
