    SEV Biblia, Chapter 31:15

    Vau Se levantó aun de noche, y dio comida a su familia, y ración a sus criadas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 31:15

    Verse 15. She riseth also while it is yet
    night] 4. She is an economist of time; and when the nights are long, and the days short, her family not only spend a part of the evening after sunset in domestic labour, but they all arise before daylight, and prepare the day's food, that they may not have their labour interrupted. To those who are going to the fields, and to the flocks, she gives the food necessary for the day: Prf teref, prey, a term taken from hunting, the object of which was, the supplying their natural wants: hence applied to daily food . See notes on chap. xxx. 8.

    And to the women who are to be employed within she gives qj chok, the task-the kind of work they are to do, the materials out of which they are to form it, and the quantity she expects from each. Thus all the servants are settled: their food, work, and tasks appointed. Every thing is done orderly.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. She riseth also while it is yet night , etc.] That is, before the ascent of the morning, as Aben Ezra explains it, before break of day; a great while before day, as Christ is said to rise to pray, ( Mark 1:35); while it was yet dark; so the church here: which shows her affection for her family, her care of her children, and fervent zeal for her husband’s interest and good; a different frame of spirit this from that of hers in ( Song of Solomon 5:2,3); and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens ; in allusion to a daily stated allowance of food given to such; and spiritually may be meant, by her “household” or family, the same with the family of Christ, that is named of himself, which consists of various persons, fathers, young men, and children; and by her “maidens” the ministers of the word; (see Proverbs 9:3); who are stewards in the family, and have the food for it put into their hands to dispense; it is by these the church gives meat to her household feeds them with knowledge and understanding, with the wholesome words of Christ, with the good doctrines of the Gospel; these have a certain portion given them, and they rightly cut and divide the word of truth, and give to everyone their portion of meat in due season, according to their age and circumstances; milk indeed to babes and meat to strong men; see ( Luke 12:42). The Targum renders the word for “portion [by] service”: understanding not a portion of food, but of work, a task set them, and so the word is used in ( Exodus 5:14). The Septuagint, Syriac, and Arabic versions, render it, “works”, which may be very well applied to the work and service of the Gospel ministry, and the several parts of it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-31 - This is the description of a virtuous
    woman of those days, but the general outlines equally suit every age and nation. She is very carefu to recommend herself to her husband's esteem and affection, to know his mind, and is willing that he rule over her. 1. She can be trusted, an he will leave such a wife to manage for him. He is happy in her. An she makes it her constant business to do him good. 2. She is one tha takes pains in her duties, and takes pleasure in them. She is carefu to fill up time, that none be lost. She rises early. She applie herself to the business proper for her, to women's business. She doe what she does, with all her power, and trifles not. 3. She makes what she does turn to good account by prudent management. Many und themselves by buying, without considering whether they can afford it She provides well for her house. She lays up for hereafter. 4. Sh looks well to the ways of her household, that she may oblige all to d their duty to God and one another, as well as to her. 5. She is inten upon giving as upon getting, and does it freely and cheerfully. 6. Sh is discreet and obliging; every word she says, shows she govern herself by the rules of wisdom. She not only takes prudent measure herself, but gives prudent advice to others. The law of love an kindness is written in the heart, and shows itself in the tongue. He heart is full of another world, even when her hands are most busy abou this world. 7. Above all, she fears the Lord. Beauty recommends none to God, nor is it any proof of wisdom and goodness, but it has deceive many a man who made his choice of a wife by it. But the fear of God reigning in the heart, is the beauty of the soul; it lasts for ever. 8 She has firmness to bear up under crosses and disappointments. Sh shall reflect with comfort when she comes to be old, that she was no idle or useless when young. She shall rejoice in a world to come. Sh is a great blessing to her relations. If the fruit be good, the tre must have our good word. But she leaves it to her own works to prais her. Every one ought to desire this honour that cometh from God; an according to this standard we all ought to regulate our judgments. Thi description let all women daily study, who desire to be truly belove and respected, useful and honourable. This passage is to be applied to individuals, but may it not also be applied to the church of God, whic is described as a virtuous spouse? God by his grace has formed from among sinful men a church of true believers, to possess all the excellences here described __________________________________________________________________
