The excellent wife (Proverbs 31.10-31) August 11/2017

This famous poem is an acrostic in Hebrew. Each verse begins with a consecutive letter of the Hebrew alphabet, giving the reader the impression of a complete picture of this godly woman. She is no less valiant, being a reflection of Lady Wisdom herself.

The excellent wife is literally called a “woman of strength or valor” She is strong in competence and character. She is rare and precious, even far beyond jewels.

I sum, the excellent wife fears and trusts the Lord. More specifically, she is trustworthy, industrious, resourceful, enterprising, sound in judgement, successful, responsible, generous, dignified, strong, kind, and supportive to her husband and family. A wise son would be wise to pursue such a wife. For in doing so, he embraces wisdom.
