A wife of noble character who can find?

She is worth far more than rubies. She is clothed with strength and dignity. She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction.

She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also praises her "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Honor her for all her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate."

(Prov.31:10 and 25-31)
