Proverbs 31:17

She girds her loins with strength, and strengthens her arms.
All Commentaries on Proverbs 31:17 Go To Proverbs 31

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
“Valiantly girding her loins, she has braced her arms.” Valiant she is indeed. Now we see if she is not also a maidservant. With what devotion she serves, and how readily! To prevent the flapping folds of carnal desires from getting in the way of her work she girds her loins, and so avoids treading on overlong skirts as she hurries about her work. There lies the chastity of this lady, tightly bound by the girdle of the commandment and always ready for good work.
