1 A Canticle in steps. Blessed are all those who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways.
2 For you will eat by the labors of your hands. Blessed are you, and it will be well with you.
3 Your wife is like an abundant vine on the sides of your house. Your sons are like young olive trees surrounding your table.
4 Behold, so will the man be blessed who fears the Lord.
5 May the Lord bless you from Zion, and may you see the good things of Jerusalem, all the days of your life.
Proverbs 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31
10 Who shall find a strong woman? Far away, and from the furthest parts, is her price.
11 The heart of her husband confides in her, and he will not be deprived of spoils.
12 She will repay him with good, and not evil, all the days of her life.
13 She has sought wool and flax, and she has worked these by the counsel of her hands.
19 She has put her hand to strong things, and her fingers have taken hold of the spindle.
20 She has opened her hand to the needy, and she has extended her hands to the poor.
30 Charm is false, and beauty is vain. The woman who fears the Lord, the same shall be praised.
31 Give to her from the fruit of her own hands. And let her works praise her at the gates.
