Sirach 26:1-4, 13-16

The Joy of a Good Wife

26Happy is the husband of a good wife;
   the number of his days will be doubled.
2 A loyal wife brings joy to her husband,
   and he will complete his years in peace.
3 A good wife is a great blessing;
   she will be granted among the blessings of the man who fears the Lord.
4 Whether rich or poor, his heart is content,
   and at all times his face is cheerful.

The Blessing of a Good Wife

13 A wife’s charm delights her husband,
   and her skill puts flesh on his bones.
14 A silent wife is a gift from the Lord,
   and nothing is so precious as her self-discipline.
15 A modest wife adds charm to charm,
   and no scales can weigh the value of her chastity.
16 Like the sun rising in the heights of the Lord,
   so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home.
