THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

31:10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

31:11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

31:12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

31:13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

31:14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

31:15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

31:16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

31:17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

31:18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

31:19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

31:20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

31:21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

31:22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

31:23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

31:24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

31:25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

31:26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

31:27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

31:28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
