"a capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman--who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls" (c) Proverbs 31:17 AMP, italics and emphasis mine.
Beauty is not skin deep, but I think there are a handful of women whose beauty is only in the depth of their skin. While a woman's beauty may get her access to some places (including a husband's heart), it takes the depth of character to keep her place secure in those places.
Proverbs 31 paints virtuous woman attributes as an entrepreneur/ business person, but the term “virtue” (virtuous) means good, desirable, high merit quality. Does a woman like this exist? If she does, who can find her for unlike beauty; her virtue is hidden inside, only making an appearance when summoned.
