Who can find a virtuous woman? Proverbs 31:10
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price [is] far above rubies. When you read a verse like this one of the first
things that comes to mind is what is meant by virtuous? As any person who
studies the word knows one of the keys to proper interruption is where a word
had been used before. We will get to that because first you should check out
