A wife of noble character3 who can find?4 She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband5 has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.612
She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.714
She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.
She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.
