CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
31:26 Openeth her mouth - She is neither sullenly silent, nor full of impertinent talk, but speaks discreetly and piously, as occasion offers. In her tongue - Her speeches are guided by wisdom and grace, and not by inordinate passions. And this practice is called a law in her tongue, because it is constant and customary, and proceeds from an inward and powerful principle of true wisdom.
The mouth of the godly person gives wise advice, but the tongue that deceives will be cut off.
She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness.
