CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
31:18 Perceiveth - She finds great comfort in her labours. Her candle - Which is not to be taken strictly, but only signifies her unwearied care and industry.

She is energetic and strong, a hard worker.
Her hands are busy spinning thread, her fingers twisting fiber.
