NEW BIBLE FROM WACK BISHOPS!
#67
Quote:Be real... Calling a woman a "woman of worth" instead of a "wife"? Who calls anyone a "woman of worth"? What does that mean anyway? Woman of worth? How much is she worth? Does this signify a prostitute?

Proverbs 31:10
NAB: When one finds a worthy wife, her value is far beyond pearls.
RSV: A good wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
NRSV: A capable wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
Jerusalem: The truly capable woman—who can find her? She is far beyond the price of pearls.
KJV: Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Douay-Rheims: Who shall find a valiant woman? far, and from the uttermost coasts is the price of her.

The DR, in this verse, calls her a valiant woman (I have a very strong suspicion that if the phrase valiant woman were used alone in the fishtank, many here would consider it a femi-nazi expression).

Interestingly, the NAB says her value is far beyond pearls, rather poetic, me thinks, yet the DR says … from the uttermost coasts is the price of her.  Is it inferring a “mail order bride” here ??? .
