The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
King James Bible
Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
American Standard Version
Every wise woman buildeth her house; But the foolish plucketh it down with her own hands.
Young's Literal Translation
Every wise woman hath builded her house, And the foolish with her hands breaketh it down.
Proverbs 14:1 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Every wise woman buildeth her house - By her prudent and industrious management she increases property in the family, furniture in the house, and food and raiment for her household. This is the true building of a house. The thriftless wife acts differently, and the opposite is the result. Household furniture, far from being increased, is dilapidated; and her household are ill-fed, ill-clothed, and worse educated.
