11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;12 She does him good and not evil
So he will have no lack of gain.
All the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,14 She is like the merchant ships,
And willingly works with her hands.
She brings her food from afar.
15 She also rises while it is yet night,16 She considers a field and buys it;
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
17 She girds herself with strength,18 She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And strengthens her arms.
And her lamp does not go out by night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,20 She extends her hand to the poor,
And her hand holds the spindle.
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,22 She makes tapestry for herself;
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
She shall rejoice in time to come.
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “ Many daughters have done well,30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But you excel them all.”
But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.
