A Christ Filled Life – Getting To Know Jesus
“Sayings of King Lemuel,” cont’d, Proverbs 31:24) She maketh fine linen, and selleth it, and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25) Strength and honour are her clothing’ and she shall rejoice in time to come. 1 Timothy 2:9, 10. 26) She openeth her mouth with wisdom: and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27) She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28) Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. 1Kings 2:19. 29) Many daughters have done virtuously (or have gotten riches), but thou excellest them all. 30) Favour(Charm) is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Psalm 112:1. v31) Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
Please see v23 corrected on previous Blog.
Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary – v25, The virtuous woman’s own clothing is far richer than linen or silk; she is dressed in strength and honour. v26-27, Any woman who opens her mouth with wisdom deserves praise. A virtuous woman takes care to speak well (James 3:2). v29, The words of v29 are the blessing of her husband. v30-31, Charm may be used for good or for evil. But its good use requires the fear of the Lord—the main theme of the Book of Proverbs.
More to come and God Bless You.
