Proverbs 31:12 Meaning and Commentary

Proverbs 31:12

She will do him good, and not evil
Or, repay good unto him, give him thanks for all the good things bestowed by him on her; will seek his interest, and promote his honour and glory to the uttermost; all the good works she does, which she is qualified for, and ready to perform, are all done in his name and strength, and with a view to his glory; nor will she do any evil willingly and knowingly against him, against his truths and ordinances; or that is detrimental to his honour, and prejudicial to his interest, ( 2 Corinthians 13:8 ) ; all the days of her life;
through which she desires to serve him in righteousness and true holiness; and to be steadfast and immovable, always abounding in his work, ( Luke 1:74 Luke 1:75 ) .
