King Lemuel: Who can find a worthy woman? For her price is far above rubies.

The words of king Lemuel; the revelation which his mother taught him. +
"Oh, my son!Oh, son of my womb!Oh, son of my vows! +
Don't give your strength to women,nor your ways to that which destroys kings. +
It is not for kings, Lemuel;it is not for kings to drink wine;nor for princes to say, 'Where is strong drink?' +
lest they drink, and forget the law,and pervert the justice due to anyone who is afflicted.
Give strong drink to him who is ready to perish;and wine to the bitter in soul: +
Let him drink, and forget his poverty,and remember his misery no more.
Open your mouth for the mute,in the cause of all who are left desolate. +
Open your mouth, judge righteously,and serve justice to the poor and needy."
Who can find a worthy woman?Proverbs 31:10-31 form an acrostic, with each verse starting with each letter of the Hebrew alphabet, in order.For her price is far above rubies. +
The heart of her husband trusts in her.He shall have no lack of gain. +
She does him good, and not harm,all the days of her life. +
She seeks wool and flax,and works eagerly with her hands. +
She is like the merchant ships.She brings her bread from afar.
She rises also while it is yet night,gives food to her household,and portions for her servant girls. +
She considers a field, and buys it.With the fruit of her hands, she plants a vineyard. +
She arms her waist with strength,and makes her arms strong. +
She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.Her lamp doesn't go out by night.
She lays her hands to the distaff,and her hands hold the spindle. +
She opens her arms to the poor;yes, she extends her hands to the needy. +
She is not afraid of the snow for her household;for all her household are clothed with scarlet. +
She makes for herself carpets of tapestry.Her clothing is fine linen and purple. +
Her husband is respected in the gates,when he sits among the elders of the land. +
She makes linen garments and sells them,and delivers sashes to the merchant. +
Strength and dignity are her clothing.She laughs at the time to come. +
She opens her mouth with wisdom.Faithful instruction is on her tongue. +
She looks well to the ways of her household,and doesn't eat the bread of idleness. +
Her children rise up and call her blessed.Her husband also praises her: +
"Many women do noble things,but you excel them all." +
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain;but a woman who fears The LORD, she shall be praised. +
Give her of the fruit of her hands!Let her works praise her in the gates!
