(Proverbs 11:16 KJV) A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong men retain riches.
The translations I have agree on the first part of this verse but have variety on the second part. That is because “gracious” (2580) is one of the important words of the OT. This is the favor that Noah found. Theologically it means that undeserved movement of God that takes place not only in our salvation but in the daily maintenance that the Holy Spirit does.
In relationships it is a human trait that we can all learn. It involves things like courtesy, kindness, patience, tact and so forth. Here the emphasis is on women. Other places it is applied across the board. You can’t ignore the recommendation of this charming way of relating just because you are not a woman in the same way that the second part doesn’t mean that only men can attain riches.
So? Live a life that produces “honor” (3519b). We are called to make a difference and you will touch areas of the world the rest of us won’t have time to reach today. Be salt and light.
