I Don’t Want the Woman of Proverbs 31

I Don’t Want the Woman of Proverbs 31


The woman of Proverbs 31

She is a virtuous Woman, 

For she open her mouth with wisdom, 

She knows when to speak and when silence is golden,

Nevertheless, I don’t want this woman.

She seeketh wool, and flax,

For she worketh willingly with her hands

This woman is not ready to eat the bread of idleness,

But she is not the woman for me.

She is like the merchants’ ships,

For she bringeth her food from afar,

She will traverse lands and seas to achieve her clear cut mission,

All these notwithstanding, I will avoid this woman.

She riseth also while it is yet night,

For she giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

She has her circadian rhythm clicked into position for she values time,

But I will ask to be excused if called upon to invoice her heart.

She considereth a field, and buyeth it,

For with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard,

She is a leaderpreneur at heart and  inherently a multiplier,

But I have to drop my pick-up lines if confronted with her.

She perceiveth that her merchandise is good,

For her candle goeth not out by night,

She is like a wise maiden who knows the time for her masters appearing,

But let me not be tempted to desire her.

She layeth her hands to the spindle, 

For her hands hold the distaff and spinned yarn,

She has mastered the art of using her hands to make a difference,

But let me not imagine calling her my own.

So why Don’t I want this woman?

Because her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her,

Because her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land,

Because the heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil,

And she will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

The woman of Proverbs 31 is not single,

She is married and with children, 

There is no chance of eloping with her for her hubby safely trust her and she is not planning to do him evil all the days of her life. 

She is a married woman,

But I want a damsel who knows no man. 

I want to make my own woman, and with her write Proverbs 32.

  2. Your politics and argument is worth it worldly.However far far away contextually, spirituality and practically.The damsel you may just remain damsel and never a woman especially after you have brought her into the house married

  3. Hi Barrack, I once asked myself why the Bible refers to a good woman as a wife. Is this woman actually married? Maybe even with children? Then after some research I realized this woman always called wife is required to already have the values and characteristics of a wife before marriage. Check Prov 18:22 . a man who finds a wife has found a good thing and it shows the lord is happy with you. So this virtuous woman or the perfect wife already has this qualities because God has put them in her. They will be seen once married. That’s my view

  4. Marriage is not a bed of roses. Every good marriage has gone through its own taste of blazing fire. True love proves in times of challenges, fight for
    your marriage . Make up your mind to stay with your with your spouse in times of need. God cannot give you a complete person you desire, He gives you the person in the form of raw materials in order for you to mould the person that you desire. This can only be archived through prayer, love and patience.
    Then you can write Proverbs. 32
