PROVERBS 31:10-31

A beautiful representation

Of an obedient and godly woman;

Who is virtuous in her ways

And in integrity will stand.

Her husband always trusts her

And he knows she’ll do no harm;

She is generous and kind

As she extends her loving arm.

She works and is diligent

To provide for her family,

And reaches out to the needy

And to those in poverty.

She’s creative in her pursuits

And not afraid to invest,

And her fruitful ways yield dividends

As she provides her very best.

She isn’t clothed with fear

But understands her responsibilities;

She is draped in fine linen

Where God’s face she yearns to see.

She is wise and speaks with kindness

And protects her household indeed;

Her children recognise that she’s blessed

As she plants much faithful seed.

She is worthy like a gem

And like rubies she will shine;

Strength and honour are her clothing

With an anointing pure and divine.

She fears the Lord and has reverence

And her hands produce much fruit;

Her husband loves and praises her

And she is not afraid of truth.

She’s the epitome of a wife

And an encouragement to us all;

To inspire us by her example

To live as we are called.

(C) P.B. 2020

“Who can find a virtuous wife?  For her worth is far above rubies, the heart of her husband safely trusts her, so he will have no lack of gain.  She does him good and not evil all the days of her life…she extends her hand to the poor, yes she reaches out her hands to the needy…She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness.  Her children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praises her…charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord she shall be praised.  Give her of the fruit of her hands”
