23A wicked woman is given as a portion to a wicked man: but a godly woman is given to him that feareth the Lord. 24A dishonest woman contemneth shame: but an honest woman will reverence her husband. 25A shameless woman shall be counted as a dog; but she that is shamefaced will fear the Lord. 26A woman that honoureth her husband shall be judged wise of all; but she that dishonoureth him in her pride shall be counted ungodly of all.27A loud crying woman and a scold shall be sought out to drive away the enemies. 28There be two things that grieve my heart; and the third maketh me angry: a man of war that suffereth poverty; and men of understanding that are not set by; and one that returneth from righteousness to sin; the Lord prepareth such an one for the sword. 29A merchant shall hardly keep himself from doing wrong; and an huckster shall not be freed from sin.
