Wesley's Notes for Proverbs 31:30

31:30 Favour - Comeliness, which commonly gives women favour with those who behold them. Deceitful - It gives a false representation of the person, being often a cover to a deformed soul; it does not give a man that satisfaction, which at first he promised to himself from it; and it is soon lost, not only by death, but by many diseases and contingencies.

Mockingbird's comment on 2014-11-07 09:48:39:

Favor of the world is deceitful has lies with it The favor of God 's Grace has love and mercy with it . God is not against beauty He has blessed some of us women with it It is in how you treat that beauty that gets God 's attention. Are we using it for His Glory or ours. Women that fear the Lord have a reverential trust in Him she shall be praised not only by the Lord but by man.

There are some women that are beautiful but, their not submissive. A woman that fear God, Love her husband and submit to him, shall be praised.

 

Nahum's comment on 2012-11-03 09:57:15:

A woman who fears the Lord, regarding her external appearance, is such a blessing to her husband. He wakes up everyday just to find out she is wiser, beautiful and satisfying that is ever increasing! He who fears the Lord, wholeheartedly, will be blessed by a godly woman. For the secret of a successful man is in the secret of a God-fearing woman.

 

Martin Asare 's comment on 2010-07-27 09:48:12:

That woman who will be the boasting of her husband, a priced treasure and a true blessing to him is the one who fears the Lord. Beauty and charm, do not promise that, instead they flatter only to dissappoint.
