14 wHouse and wealth are inherited from fathers,
but a prudent wife is xfrom the Lord.
18 fDiscipline your son, for there is hope;
do not set your heart on gputting him to death.
7 The righteous who jwalks in his integrity—
kblessed are his children after him!
6 wTrain up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
but nthe rod of discipline drives it far from him.
13 Do not withhold ndiscipline from a child;
oif you strike him with a rod, he will not die.
14 If you strike him with the rod,
you will psave his soul from Sheol.
that I may manswer him who reproaches me.
3 He who eloves wisdom makes his father glad,
15 vThe rod and reproof give wisdom,
but a child left to himself wbrings shame to his mother.
17 yDiscipline your son, and he will give you rest;
he will give delight to your heart.
The Woman Who Fears the Lord
She is far more precious than vjewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She wseeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.
15 She xrises while it is yet night
and yprovides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
and makes her arms strong.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
and reaches out her hands to bthe needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
22 She makes dbed coverings for herself;
23 Her husband is known in gthe gates
when he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes hlinen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
25 iStrength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
but you surpass them all.”
30 lCharm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.
