The Biblical view of the noble wife
is the Biblical description of a good wife?
Proverbs 31:10-29, TLB.
"If you can find a truly good wife, she is worth more than precious
gems! Her husband can trust her, and she will richly satisfy his
needs. . . .She is energetic, a hard worker, and watches for bargains.
She works far into the night! She sews for the poor, and generously
gives to the needy. . .She is a woman of strength and dignity,
and has no fear of old age. When she speaks, her words are wise,
and kindness is the rule for everything she says. She watches
carefully all that goes on throughout her household, and is never

praises her with these words; 'There are many fine women in the
world, but you are the best of them all!'

and be its Savior!) So you wives must willingly obey your husbands
in everything, just as the church obeys Christ." I Peter 3:1-5,
NIV says, "Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands
so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won
over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see
the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not
come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing
of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of
your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit,
which is of great worth in God's sight. For this is the way the
holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make
