Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her..
Her children rise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, shall be praised.
Proverbs 31: 10-11, 28, 30
