“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a
woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.”
The perfect woman to marry can be found. Ignore beauty and favors of women to seek one spiritual and one natural trait. Great women exist, and one properly selected will provide lifelong blessing and influence future generations. Here are two fool-proof traits, and both sexes should learn them well.
“For by means of a whorish woman
a man is brought to a piece of bread:
and the adultress will hunt for the precious life.”
The whorish woman is a grave threat to every man that wants to be wise and righteous. She will reduce him to a piece of bread and seek to destroy his life. Solomon knew by experience, and he considered her worse than death. Only a few ever recover from her wiles, and then only by God’s grace. Get far away from her now!
“A gracious woman retaineth honour:
and strong men retain riches.”
A gracious woman will blow you away with kindness, warmth, and femininity. She is always respected, for this rare trait sets her apart from all others. Graciousness is the most beautifying trait, yet few can define it, and even fewer have it. This special woman deserves great affection, honor, and protection.
“And, behold, there met him a woman
with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.”
A woman’s clothing shows her heart and character. A whore dresses like one, and a virtuous woman dresses modestly in the opposite direction. She is never provocative, and her husband can always safely trust her. She knows clothes are to conceal, not reveal, those parts of her body for her husband only.
