Proverbs 19:14 – A Gift from the Lord

Summary

A good spouse is a gift of God.

Analysis

While the amount of an inheritance can be calculated, a good wife or good husband comes as a gift from the Lord. The theme is that of God's guidance; see also the story of Isaac and Rebekah in Genesis 24.

Proverbs 19:14


14 House and wealth are inherited from parents,
   but a prudent wife is from the Lord.
