      Such a woman has been enshrined in the Scriptures for several thousand years as God's role model for the godly, virtuous woman. To the older women I say, teach these things to the younger women. To the younger women, I exhort you to resist the enticements of the antifamily feminist teachings of our day. Reach out, rather, to embrace God's vision for you, His "virtuous women". To such a woman God says (vs. 31), "Let her works praise her at the city gates."

      Postscript: This study is written with much deference and respect to those single women and widows who serve the Lord. They too may be deemed to be "virtuous women" in the light of the verses that apply to them in their unmarried state, both in Proverbs 31 and elsewhere in the Scriptures. In this bible study I have simply attempted to focus on the Proverbs 31 expression of God's "virtuous woman" without trying to cover every possible marital situation. I extend my deepest respect to you virtuous ladies among the godly single women and widows!
