Proverbs 31:25-31 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

25 Strength and honor are her clothing,
and she can laugh at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom
and loving instruction[a] is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the activities of her household
and is never idle.[b]
28 Her sons rise up and call her blessed.
Her husband also praises her:
29 “Many women[c] are capable,
but you surpass them all!”
30 Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting,
but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.
31 Give her the reward of her labor,[d]
and let her works praise her at the city gates.
