10 Attributes Of A Noble Wife

Spread the love

Each of us has her own unique character.

But Proverbs 31:10-31 of the Bible speaks of the character or attributes of a Wife with noble character.

It even asked who can find a Wife of a Noble Character?

Is it really hard to find one?

But how do we know if we bear those attributes?

From the verses, I have identified 10 Attributes that you can set as example to win what this noble woman won for having these attributes:


10 Attributes Of A Noble Wife

1.Decisive it is this character that makes her husband confident in her. Because of her wise decisions, her family lacks nothing of their basic needs and in no way she brings trouble to his husband but only good things. (Proverbs 31: 11-12)
2.Independent being a merchant and being compared to a merchant ship which is always very organized in being loaded, she can stand alone and can provide for her family. (Proverbs 31:13-14)
3.With Good Heart and Good Time Management though engaged in a business, providing food for her family is not a burden. She wakes up early in the morning.
Just my thought, I think being late with transactions is not in her vocabulary.
And the servant girls may represent her workers or crew, to be reword in our time.
Her worker might be receiving free meal as a benefit. (Proverbs 31:15)
4.Factual Investor she is not controlled by gut feel or impulse buying.
Before she buys property, is doing some researches to consider if an investment will be profitable or not. (Proverbs 31:16)
5.Hands-on Manager she knows by her own knowledge how to do the job so she can easily forecast and organize process & operations. (Proverbs 31:17-19,22,26)
6.Wise imagine the impact of being a manufacturer and have merchandisers to supply?
It is also multiplying your very own capacity-wise decision. (Proverbs 31:14)
7.Efficient being a manufacturer with the capacity of being a supplier, she is efficiently doing her work. (Proverbs 31:15)
8.Considerate/Merciful she doesn’t only sympathize, but because she has abundance, she is able to extend help or give to the needy.
Many of us would like to help the poor and needy, but how can we help, if we don’t work wisely as the noble woman did? (Proverbs 31:20)
9.Household Overseer no matter how busy, she makes it a point to know and oversee the needs and concerns of her household. (Proverbs 31:21,27-28)
10.Strong/Dignified all of the above makes her strong and speaks of her dignity to the point of reflecting it to family members. (Proverbs 31:28-31)

This is the noble woman that the Bible describes.

You can silently make a checklist of what you have to be called that strong and dignified being honored by your family and neighbor.



In reality, we have weaknesses.

We can desire to have these 10 attributes.

From time to time, we can meet some and also fall short.

Don’t worry and never be lonely for not getting a perfect score on these.

As the Bible says, this woman is hard to find.

What it is important is, we are loved and accepted;

We extend love and care the way that we can give.

  1. A very timely reminder for me. We can be very busy with a lot of things but these ten attributes tell us what really matters. We need the grace of God to be able to accomplish such nobility.

    1. Amen to that! We may exert much and own efforts but at the end we end up still lacking and not satisfied. I agree that only through the grace of God can we accomplish them. It is accomplishing without burdens and brings joy to our hearts.

  2. These are ten great attributes of either a wife or a husband. I think that some of us have been looking for a partner who has almost all of these attributes and come up empty-handed. Sometimes it is better to find someone that you enjoy and work on developing those attributes. People can change and you can help inspire them to become a better version of themselves. 

    1. I agree, the perfect partner can’t be found. I like your chosen word of inspiring. Loving wholeheartedly will do the work of changing. It just follow. I remember what my Pastor shared last couple’s night celebration. He said, ” a woman’s stage set during the wedding is AISLE-ALTAR-HYMN”. But after the wedding comes the mindset of I’LL ALTER HIM”. Such a no-no with true love. We cannot insist to change a person. We only need to accept him for whoever he is. Then the impact of love will follow.

  3. Hello there! These are really great attributes that a wife should have but unfortunately it’s also very hard for one to attain them all (and that’s okay!). But I really think all people have the potential to take the steps to change and work on striving for these 10 attributes. Even if they are unsuccessful in achieving a few attributes, the fact that they are trying is a beautiful things in its own way. Thanks for this, I think as a guy I should also try to strive to achieve these attributes myself, it would only be fair to the woman.

    1. Thanks for liking the attributes. We cannot really imposed them to a person. Sometimes we do expect changes or at least there is something that we secretly expect from our partner. You may start from loving unconditionally. To accept your wife’s total person and loving her despite having weakness. Find ways on how you can help her strengthen her weakness without really telling her to change. And your goal in helping her is first for her own benefit then for the family. She will naturally bloom and you will see the attributes start to follow. 

      The same way, you do not need to exert effort of saying I want to be like this or that. Let the love naturally flow. Express it. Try the strategy of always courting her. It doesn’t need to be expensive. She will feel your sincerity. Just be yourself and be realistic with what you can offer. You are loved just because your wife love you. Not for what you can give per se. 

  4. Great article, we can’t accomplish this attributes without the grace of God. We have our short comes, but we are trying very hard, to be in line with the word of God. No one is perfect or without sin, But I believe by taking this step by step will help us to achieve many things in our lives.

    1. Hi Dozzy,

      Thanks for your comment. May I share my personal experience. The more I try and pushed my effort to do them, the more I get expose to my failures and shortcomings. I suggest you don’t push yourself. Just love with all your heart. They will come out naturally. Not overnight, but they will develop. I do not really know how about the details. But whenever I make mistakes, I am talking to God that it is between me and Him. He knows my heart and intentions. Failure, especially when you are new or levelling up to a certain target may be inevitable. You just keep moving on and giving space for improvements. Little by little you will notice the difference.
