the unvirtuous wife

Posted in epiphany tiffany, thought spills by enisea on 25/06/2012

Proverbs 31:10-31 in reverse.

Who would want to find an unvirtuous wife?
For her worth is not apparent.

In his heart, her husband cannot trust her
Because of the distrust, progress is absent

She does him little good
All the days of her life.

She is never resourceful or creative
And is unwilling to work or be useful.

She is like a sinking ship
Her cargo goes to waste and nobody is satisfied

She sleeps in – and has never demonstrated diligence or discipline
Her family never eat breakfast and are seldom fed at home
She hasn’t the capacity to be considerate to those outside her family

The few big decisions she makes are poorly thought through
She makes a loss and blames another.

She has the resilience, endurance and perseverance of a toothpick
And is always the victim

She complains that all her things are not good enough
And never has enough oil, so her lamp burns out too early in the day.

She does not push herself or try very hard
And she doesn’t know what to do with her hands, they haven’t been taught how to be useful.

There is no poverty that moves her
She has never been charitable and offers no compassion to others.

She fears change and/or hardship
And is never prepared, so her household suffer.

She cannot do anything for herself,
And she is not complimented or thought highly of by the way she dresses and carries herself

Her husband isn’t a recognised person
And has yet to excel in his job (or be supported to).

With her spare time, she goes shopping
And does not know the extent of her debt.

Weakness and dishonor clothe her
She never looks hopefully ahead.

She opens her mouth with foolishness
And her tongue is cruel and harsh.

She never knows what goes on in her household
And is ignorant of time, therefore wastes it perpetually.

Her children disregard her and have no pride in her
Her husband too, and he complains about her.

“Many women have made mistakes,
But you have made more than most of them combined”

Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing
And a woman who has little regard for anyone, let alone God, has little to be praised for.

Give her what she deserves, what she has worked for
And let her achievements cause her to be recognised.
