"A gracious woman retaineth honour..." (Proverbs 11:16)

The word honour used in this verse means "weight" in the Hebrew language. It comes from a word that means "to be heavy."

This is one time it is a compliment if someone says, "you've put on some weight." A heavy set woman is a glory to the Lord.
