Bible Commentary for Proverbs 31:12

Wesley's Notes for Proverbs 31:12


31:10 A virtuous woman - Here he lays down several qualifications of an excellent wife, which are delivered in alphabetical order, each verse beginning with a several letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

31:11 No need - He shall have no need to use indirect courses to get wealth.

31:13 Flax - That she may find employment for her servants. Worketh - She encourages them to work by her example; which was a common practice among princesses in those first ages. Not that it is the duty of kings and queens to use manual operations, but it is the duty of all persons, the greatest not excepted, to improve all their talents, and particularly their time, which is one of the noblest of them, to the service of that God to whom they must give an account, and to the good of that community to which they are related.

31:14 From afar - By the sale of her home - spun commodities she purchases the choicest goods which come from far countries.
