|What a rare find is a capable wife! Her worth is far beyond that of rubies|
Proverbs 31:10 (The Israel Bible™)
אֵשֶׁת־חַיִל מִי יִמְצָא וְרָחֹק מִפְּנִינִים מִכְרָהּ
Hear the verse in Hebrew
AY-shet KHA-yil MEE yim-TZA v’-ra-KHOK mi-p’-nee-NEEM mikh-RAH
This chapter of Proverbs contains an extended poem in praise of the eishet chayil, translated here as ‘capable wife,’ but generally referred to as the ‘woman of valor’. She provides for her family in all ways, both materially and spiritually, and her endeavors and accomplishments are praised by the members of her household and by others.
This poem is sung by Jews around the world on Friday nights, as they begin the first Shabbat meal. It is often understood as a praise for the Jewish woman who works hard to care for her family and for others, and to prepare for the Shabbat each week. [VIDEO]
