Sirach 25:23
A wicked wife causes a humiliated heart, a gloomy face, and a wounded heart. Drooping hands and weakened knees come from a woman who doesn’t make her husband happy.
And there is no anger above the anger of a woman. It will be more agreeable to abide with a lion and a dragon, than to dwell with a wicked woman.
A bad wife will make her husband gloomy and depressed, and break his heart. Show me a timid man who can never make up his mind, and I will show you a wife who doesn't make her husband happy.
Depressed mind, gloomy face, and a wounded heart—a wicked woman. Drooping hands and quaking knees, any wife who does not make her husband happy.
Dejected mind, gloomy face, and wounded heart come from an evil wife. Drooping hands and weak knees come from the wife who does not make her husband happy.

A low heart, and (a) sorrowful face, and (a) wound of death, is (from) a wicked woman. Feeble hands and knees unbound, (resulteth from) a woman that blesseth not her husband. [A low heart, and a dreary face, and a wound of death, a shrewd (or depraved) woman. Feeble hands and unloos(en)ed knees, a woman that maketh not blissful or blessful her husband.]
