Strength and honor are her clothing,
and she can l augh at the time to come.
26 Her mouth speaks wisdom,
and l oving i nstruction i s on her tongue.
27 She watches over the activities of her household
and i s never i dle.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also praises her:
29 “Many women have done noble deeds,
but you surpass them all!”
30 Charm i s deceptive and beauty i s fleeting,
but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.
31 Give her the reward of her l abor,
and l et her works praise her at the city gates.
