Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Multae filiae congregaverunt divitias; tu supergressa es universas.
Fallax gratia, et vana est pulchritudo: mulier timens Dominum, ipsa laudabitur.

English.png English translation

Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
