An excellent wife as defined by the Bible

Pro 31:10  An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels.

Pro 31:11  The heart of her husband trusts in her, And he will have no lack of gain.

The excellent wife is priceless and cannot be bought, the Word tells us that her value exceeds even valuable diamonds.  We also learn that the excellent wife can be trusted by her husband to make sure the affairs of the household are handled.

Pro 31:20  She extends her hand to the poor, And she stretches out her hands to the needy.

The wife that is to be prized also looks after the downtrodden and destitute.  

Sadly, the modern world has conditioned men to pursue a woman who is far younger than they are, and puts a materialistic value on their outward beauty, but none of that is mentioned in today’s Bible verses.  Instead, the wife that a man should cherish is one who looks after the poor, sees to the order of their family affairs and is trustworthy.  The wife that does that, is to be prized above the most dazzling diamonds in the world.
