    She is worth far more than jewels.

    He will never be poor.
12 She does good for her husband all her life.
    She never causes him trouble.
13 She is always gathering wool and flax
    and enjoys making things with her hands.
14 She is like a ship from a faraway place.
    She brings home food from everywhere.
15 She wakes up early in the morning,
    cooks food for her family, and gives the servants their share.
16 She looks at land and buys it.
    She uses the money she has earned and plants a vineyard.

    to make sure her business earns a profit.
