Who is the Proverbs 31 woman?

Who is the Proverbs 31 woman? She is a virtuous woman who opens her mouth and will express herself discreetly with wisdom. She speaks kindly to everyone doing acts of kindness herself. The things of the household are done in order and she is not idle in her household. Her children grow up and respect her and have reverence for her, they call her blessed since she is blessed in Christ.  Her husband praises her that she excels in all she does. As beauty and charm will fade in time a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised. The woman described here may not just be one woman but snapshot of what a woman should be like according to God’s Word. We live in a world today where physical beauty is given so much importance and the beauty of the woman described here comes from within.


Proverbs 31:10-11,26-31

Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies.  The heart of her husband safely trusts her. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed, her husband also, and he praises her, many daughters have done well, but you excel them all.  Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
