“A gracious woman obtains honor,
    but violent men obtain riches.

A worthy woman is the crown of her husband,
    but a disgraceful wife is as rottenness in his bones.

Every wise woman builds her house,
    but the foolish one tears it down with her own hands.

Who can find a worthy woman?
    For her price is far above rubies.

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain;
    but a woman who fears Yahweh, she shall be praised.”

—Proverbs 11:16, 12:4, 14:1, 31:10, 30 (WEB)
