The Gates of Proverbs 31

2 years ago

Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.
Proverbs 31:23

Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
Proverbs 31:31

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.
