“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in days to come. Her children arise up and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praiseth her. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.” Proverbs 31:10, 25, 28, 30
