The Nature of the True Virtuous Woman is Wisdom

The Nature of the True Virtuous Woman is Wisdom: For now, we need to know the true portion of the woman. What is a woman truly supposed to be like, especially as a wife! Examine for yourself scriptures from some of Israel’s wisest below:

Proverbs 18:22 KJV
[22] Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

It’s a good thing to find a wife, it shows the ALMIGHTY is showing you favor.

Sirach 26:1 KJV
[1] Blessed is the man that hath a virtuous wife, for the number of his days shall be double.

IF you truly have a virtuous wife, instead of living to 40, you’ll live to 80; of course, this is metaphorically speaking. Finding a virtuous woman is not a simple walk down the block either.

Proverbs 31:10 KJV
[10] Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Making Her Husband Happy

Sirach 26:2-3,7-8,10-16 KJV
[2] A virtuous woman rejoiceth her husband, and he shall fulfil the years of his life in peace. [3] A good wife is a good portion, which shall be given in the portion of them that fear the Lord.

[7] An evil wife is a yoke shaken to and fro: he that hath hold of her is as though he held a scorpion. [8] A drunken woman and a gadder abroad causeth great anger, and she will not cover her own shame.

Control the Upbringing of Your Daughter

[10] If thy daughter be shameless, keep her in straitly, lest she abuse herself through overmuch liberty. [11] Watch over an impudent eye: and marvel not if she trespass against thee.

[12] She will open her mouth, as a thirsty traveller when he hath found a fountain, and drink of every water near her: by every hedge will she sit down, and open her quiver against every arrow.

[13] The grace of a wife delighteth her husband, and her discretion will fatten his bones. [14] A silent and loving woman is a gift of the Lord; and there is nothing so much worth as a mind well instructed.

Shamefaced and Continent Mind

[15] A shamefaced and faithful woman is a double grace, and her continent mind cannot be valued. [16] As the sun when it ariseth in the high heaven; so is the beauty of a good wife in the ordering of her house.

A woman of Sarah’s calibre, which women today should actually be striving for, should be silent, loving, shamefaced, faithful, continent, and goodly to her husband. This is how she should be towards all men, but especially to her husband. There is more; examine!

Proverbs 31:11-12,20,23,25-28,30 KJV

[11] The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. [12] She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. [20] She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

[23] Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. [25] Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. [26] She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

[27] She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. [28] Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. [30] Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

A Man is Wise to Select a Wise Woman

This is the type of woman that becomes wisdom to her man. This is the type of woman that men want to have around. Righteous men want virtuous women, and a virtuous woman wants a righteous man.

These are the women a wise king will have in his circle and it can help a king rule better. An example of this is King Solomon in his prime:

1st Kings 10:1-9 KJV

[1] And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to prove him with hard questions. [2] So she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.

[3] And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not. [4] When the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built,

[5] And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit in her.

Everyone Was Happy

[6] And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. [7] Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it : and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.

[8] Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom. [9] Blessed be the Lord thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the Lord loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.

The man had wisdom!

1st Kings 10:23-24 KJV
[23] So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. [24] And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.

What added to his wisdom aside from what the ALMIGHTY gave to him? Women; righteous women! Women can be the cause of a man’s success or the stumbling block and cause of his failure and demise. In the case of King Solomon, they were both, his success and failure:

Strange Women or Strange Wives

1st Kings 11:1-4 KJV
[1] But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;

[2] Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.

[3] And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. [4] For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.

Something Strange

Solomon fell off the horse because he made marriages with too many women (a rule Israel were not to do, Deuteronomy 17:17), and he took wives from strange nations. Strange nations would equate (to a degree) that the women of these nations are strange women.

A woman can be from a strange nation and not be a strange woman, such as in the case with Ruth. A man or woman from a strange nation is no longer strange when they discard the gods of their nation of origin and turn to the ELOHIM of Israel (their CREATOR).

1st Kings 11:1-2 KJV

[1] But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;

[2] Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.

Consider this; the women of Israel as wives maintained Solomon, the king. The strange women led him away from his POWER in his older age.

Proverbs 7:1-5 KJV

[1] My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. [2] Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. [3] Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.

[4] Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: [5] That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.

Solomon, like many men, became flattered with her strange words.

Proverbs 5:1-4,9-10,15-17,20-21 KJV

[1] My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding: [2] That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge. [3] For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

[4] But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword. [9] Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel: [10] Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;

[15] Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well. [16] Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets. [17] Let them be only thine own, and not strangers’ with thee.

[20] And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger? [21] For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings.

Compare Solomon to his father, King David.

King David selected women of Israel who were wise and virtuous:

1 Samuel 25:3,31-33,39-42 KJV
[3] Now the name of the man was Nabal; and the name of his wife Abigail: and she was a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance: but the man was churlish and evil in his doings; and he was of the house of Caleb.

[31] That this shall be no grief unto thee, nor offence of heart unto my lord, either that thou hast shed blood causeless, or that my lord hath avenged himself: but when the Lord shall have dealt well with my lord, then remember thine handmaid.

[32] And David said to Abigail, Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, which sent thee this day to meet me: [33] And blessed be thy advice, and blessed be thou, which hast kept me this day from coming to shed blood, and from avenging myself with mine own hand.

Abigail Had Wisdom

[39] And when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, Blessed be the Lord, that hath pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal, and hath kept his servant from evil: for the Lord hath returned the wickedness of Nabal upon his own head. Thus David sent and communed with Abigail, to take her to him to wife.

[40] And when the servants of David were come to Abigail to Carmel, they spake unto her, saying, David sent us unto thee, to take thee to him to wife. [41] And she arose, and bowed herself on her face to the earth, and said, Behold, let thine handmaid be a servant to wash the feet of the servants of my lord.

[42] Abigail hasted, and arose, and rode upon an ass, with five damsels of hers that went after her; and she went after the messengers of David, and became his wife.

A Beautiful Countenance

Abigail did not stay and inherit the wealth of her deceased husband; she left to be with the King of Israel. David heard Nabal had passed, and he quickly went to bring Princess Abigail to be his wife. Why? Abigail was a woman of a beautiful countenance and she was with a good understanding.

1st Samuel 25:3 KJV
[3] Now the name of the man was Nabal; and the name of his wife Abigail: and she was a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance:

Abigail was intelligent, agreeable, understood men; go look up how she is described in the strong’s lexicon. This is why David immediately went to make her his wife when he heard Nabal died.

Best Organizations Have Women in Leadership

Successful men have wise, intelligent, and women with a good understanding by their side. The bonus is if she is beautiful inward and outward as was in Abigail’s case.

Women reading this may say, “I can be all these things to a man who deserves it!” That very well may be true. Truth is, unfortunately, many men are crust, integrity-wise, and morally, they are not worth the juice squeezed off of a bum.

This is not a reason to carry a negative pompous attitude to every man. In addition, it is not worth losing the very essence of carrying out the true nature of a daughter of Zion.


This study topic was put together to rebuild the family institution according to the holiest order given to man. It is the order of the Son of Elohim, Yashaya (Jesus) the Christ. This is the Order of Melchizedek.

In order to build a nation, it starts with the men. The men must be fitly joined by a virtuous woman. A man should have a pleasing wife so they may bring up righteous children. This must all be done decently and in order; in the order must all things be done!

After the order of Melchizedek.

*  Sirach or otherwise known as Ecclesiasticus is one of the books of the Apocrypha that were taken out of the original King James Bible by the Catholic Church because they deemed it not canon at the time or then. However, BibleStudyMinistry.com has done our own research and found the books removed to be very instrumental to more expedient edification to help anyone understand scripture and the dialogue of the Word of Elohim better. But don’t take our word for it; read it yourself. Salud.
