    First and foremost this is NOT a religious thread. If you can not be nice don't play.

    Every time fall and winter roll around I crave knowledge. All kinds of topics interest me. DH and I spend hours in the evenings learning. It could be documentaries, books, magazines or what have you. Lately one Bible passage has become my favorite. Proverbs 31:10-31. Maybe it is because everywhere I look it is harder to find woman who fit this description. I try my hardest to be a capable wife but in this era it can be hard. I do not consider myself at all religious but I do like reading the Bible on occasion. I think a lot of historical books have values to glean.

    What is your favorite verse(s).

    Proverbs 31:10-31 (King James Version)

    10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

    11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

    12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

    13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

    14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

    15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

    16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

    17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

    18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

    19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

    20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

    21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

    22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

    23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

    24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

    25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

    26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

    27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

    28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

    29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

    30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

    31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

    Yes, one of my very favorite chapters in the entire Bible! Oh to live up to the standards of the Proverbs 31 woman!! Another of my favorites is the Beatitudes in the book of Matthew.

    Quote:kinda sorta but not really. A lot of folks who do not believe in the Bible still read it and enjoy some verses. They just look at it as Literature rather than truth.

    Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take [it], and likewise [his] scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
