Ben Sira 26:1-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
1 Happy the husband of a good wife;
the number of his days will be doubled.
2 A loyal wife brings joy to her husband,
and he will finish his years in peace.
3 A good wife is a generous gift
bestowed upon him who fears the Lord.
4 Whether rich or poor, his heart is content,
a smile ever on his face.
