Praise for the perfect wife (Prov 31:26-31:29)

Phe

“She opens her mouth with wisdom.

The teaching of kindness is on her tongue.

Cade

She looks well to the ways of her household.

She does not eat the bread of idleness.

Qoph

Her children rise up.

They call her happy.

Her husband also calls her happy,

He praises her.

Resh

‘Many women have done excellently.

But you surpass them all.’”

The perfect good wife speaks wisdom and kindness. She spends her time making the household better, and not in idleness. Her children call her happy and blessed, as does her husband. He has praise for her. He proclaims that she surpasses all the excellent women that are out there.
