SHE IS EXPENSIVE
11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
SHE IS ENCOURAGED

SHE IS KIND
13 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.
SHE IS CREATIVE
14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
SHE IS ORGANISED
15 She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants.
SHE IS GENEROUS
16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
SHE IS A BUSINESS WOMAN
17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.

18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.

19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
SHE IS ATTENTIVE
20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
SHE IS COMPASSIONATE
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
SHE IS FEARLESS
22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

SHE IS A LEADER
28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:
SHE IS BLESSED
29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
SHE STANDS OUT
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
SHE LOVES GOD
31 Honour her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
