Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Mulieris bonæ beatus vir: numerus enim annorum illorum duplex.
Mulier fortis oblectat virum suum, et annos vitæ illius in pace implebit.
Pars bona mulier bona, in parte timentium Deum dabitur viro pro factis bonis.

English.png English translation

Blessed is the man that hath a virtuous wife, for the number of his days shall be double.
A virtuous woman rejoiceth her husband, and he shall fulfil the years of his life in peace.
A good wife is a good portion, which shall be given in the portion of them that fear the Lord.
