Proverbs 31 in October

Seminary is a great place for you to meet friends who will stay in your life. Lara was a sweet friend in seminary, and only recently, thanks to the wonderful social media network known as facebook, have we gotten back in touch.
Lara is a gifted author, speaker, and wife and mom. She lives a short distance away in NC.
On her blog this month you will find several of her friends, including me, writing on the traits of the Proverbs 31 woman.
Check out her blog in October and find encouraging words and prayers and help for you to live a life God has called you to (if you are a woman, whether single or married, mom, and empty-nester, or childless, whatever your status – we are all women created perfectly in God’s image, to reflect Him).

    Word on the street is that there is no mention of “virtuosity” or “excellency” in the initial Hebrew description of the Proverbs 31 woman (often translated “an ‘excellent’ wife who can find”), but that the Hebrew word used denotes {physical} strength or capability. Thoughts?

    • kimddavidson says:

      You are right. Virtuous is how it is actually reads – or a woman of strength. If you take what most scholars think and have Ruth as the model – she lifts all that barley that Boaz gives her – about 50 lbs. Virtuous – woman of strength – moral strength and character.

      • Beth says:

        Hmm. I don’t think it reads “virtuous,” though. It’s not talking about moral strength. Is it? That’s just what it’s always implied as meaning, but I don’t know that that’s actually there…?

      What have you found it meaning to say? I’ll have to get to my work computer on Monday before I have anything that can help me more than I what I have…

  2. Beth says:

    I just mean that it is saying that she is physically strong, and that it’s not making a reference to moral character.

    True enough. Fun “commenting” back & forth. 🙂
