Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
This section of Proverbs began the focus on the type of woman Lemuel’s mother would want him to have as his wife. This woman was one who was valuable. Her worth couldn’t be measured in terms of costly jewels. Her husband could have full confidence in her, without any fear. Her finest efforts are put forth to help him, as she never failed to cooperate with her husband.
