Ecclesiasticus 26: 1-4 ( The New Jerusalem Bible)
How Blessed is the husband of a really good wife;
the number of his days will be doubled.
A perfect wife is the joy of her husband, he will
live out the years of his life in peace.
A good wife is the best of portions, reserved
for those who fear the Lord; rich or poor,
their hearts will be glad, their faces cheerful,
whatever the season.
