About "Eshet Chayil"
Eshet Chayil is sung to a bride as she circles her husband to be seven times under the Chuppah (Wedding canopy).
It is also sung on Shabbat by a husband to his wife.
Proverbs 31:10
A woman of valor who can find, for her price is beyond pearls.
Her husband relies on her, and he will lack no gain.
She requites him with good and not with evil all the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax, and she works it with the will of her hands.
She is like the merchant ships, she brings her food from afar.
She rises when it is still night; she gives food to her household and an allotted share to her maidens.
She contemplates a field and purchases it; from the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
She girds her loins with vigor and strengthens her arms.

Eishes chayil mi yimtza ve-rachok mi-peninim michrah
Batach bah leiv ba'alah ve-shalal lo yech'sar.
Gemalta'hu tov ve-lo ra kol yemei chayeha.
Dar'eshah tzemer u'fishtim va-ta'as be-cheifetz kapeha.

Hayta ko-oniyat socheir mi-merchak tavi lachma.
Va-takam be'od laila va-titein teref le-veitah ve-chok le-na'aroteha.
Zamema sadeh va-tika'cheihu mi-peri kapeha nata karem.
Chag'erah ve-oz mot'neha va-te'ameitz zero'oteha.
