The Gates of Proverbs 31
Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.
Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
Why is this statement about a man in the gates placed in the middle of a chapter about the ideal wife? Because without her, he wouldn't be there. A man's reputation and standing in the community is directly related to his wife's competence, wisdom, and support. Be very careful in your choice of a mate. A good woman can make your life amazing. A bad woman can make your life miserable.
