She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
She weaves garments and sells them at the market. Due to her preparedness, she faces the future with confidence. She gives her family instruction, with a balance of wisdom and kindness. She does not waste time or involve herself with unproductive activity.
