"She is not afraid of the snow for her household, For all her household are clothed with scarlet." Proverbs 31:21
"Strength and dignity are her clothing, And she smiles at the future."
"She looks well to the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness."
"There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise, But a foolish man swallows it up."
"The ants are not a strong people, But they prepare their food in the summer;"
"Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise, Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler, Prepares her food in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest.
"Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth."
"Know well the condition of your flocks, And pay attention to your herds; For riches are not forever, Nor does a crown endure to all generations. When the grass disappears, the new growth is seen, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in, The lambs will be for your clothing, And the goats will bring the price of a field, And there will be goats' milk enough for your food, For the food of your household, And sustenance for your maidens."
"He who tills his land will have plenty of food, But he who follows empty pursuits will have poverty in plenty."
"He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who pursues worthless things lacks sense."
