Proverbs 31 Woman…


As the rubies red are hard to find,
So is a woman virtuous and kind.

Her husband’s heart is filled with trust,
He hunts not treasures as most men dost.

No evil will this woman do,
But only good to him will shew.

Flax and wool she searcheth out,
Hands willingly work without a pout.

From far like ships she bringeth food,
To prepare at night for her households good.

She sought, considered and bought a field,
By the fruit of her hands her vineyard will yield.

By the work she doeth all the day long,
Are her loins girt about and her arms made strong.

Her merchandise is good in her sight,
Her candle goeth not out by night.

Of the spindle and distaff her hands take hold,
Never laying in her lap her hands do fold.

To the poor and needy her hands do spread,
She does not begrudge to give them bread.

In winter she doth not the wind or snow loathe,
For in scarlet doth she her whole household clothe.

Coverings of tapestry upon her are laid,
Of silk and purple her wardrobe is made.

Amidst the elders her husband is known,
When to a seat among them he’s shown.

She maketh and selleth of her fine linen,
And to the merchants her girdles are given.

Strength and honour are her clothing of choice,
In the time to come she shall rejoice.

With not but wisdom her mouth is strung,
The law of kindness is in her tongue.

With idleness is she never fed,
But toils hard for her daily bread.

To call her blessed her children arise,
Her husband praiseth her likewise.

Many daughters have done well,
But thou dost all of them excel!


Vain is her beauty, deceitful her  favour,
But who feareth the LORD, Praise will she savour.

Reward for the fruit of her hand ye shall give,
Her own works shall praise her as long as she live.

  1. I thought this was a hymn! What a lovely, fitting, tribute to your Mother!!!
    It is a blessing beyond compare to be given a Mother like this, isn't it? Truly they are rarer than rubies red, and far more valuable. God has given us such treasures when He gives us our Mother.
    God Bless you both... and thank you for sharing this!

  3. Thank you Faith! Amen! The LORD is very very good to give us mothers and fathers... Too many young people do not realize this and our generation is filled with flagrant rebellion and flippant disrespect. Let us rise today and give honor due to our parents! Thank you so much for your comment!

    Thank you Christina :) It means a lot to have you commend the writing :) Amen! It is my hope and prayer to be her in every way, following in the footsteps of my mother and other good women! Thank you so much for your encouraging comment! I pray that all are well in your house! :)

  4. Thank you, dear sweet Brytni! This is a marvelous reflection of Proverbs 31. May the LORD grant us strength to live out our role as women to His praise and glory! Thank you for being a wonderful and honoring daughter. I love you! "Ps 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His law doth he meditate day and night."

  5. Thank you mom, not only for your comment, but for your example to me :) Love you too!
    "The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."
    Titus 2:3-4
