Haus und Güter erbet man von Eltern,
Aber ein fromm und tugendsam Weib kömmt vom Herren.
Wer eine Ehfrau findet, der findet etwas guts
und schöpfet Segen von Herren.

English.png English translation

House and goods may come from parents,
But a pious and virtuous woman comes from the Lord.
If you find an honourable woman, you will find something good
and draw blessings from the Lord.

Translation by James Gibb
