Chayil Standards for Women

Bahtyah Members should strive to achieve the standards of a Chayil.  Not everyone is Chayil or capable of this.  You can be virtuous & righteous and not be Chayil.

Chayil means strength, ability, might, efficiency, wealth, force.  Chayil was translated to Virtuous, but virtuous does not mean these things.  Virtuous just means having good morals, but the Proverbs 31 woman is more than just virtuous, she is strong, mighty, efficient, and has many abilities. Maybe the translators had a different idea of what a woman should be because every time the translators came across Chayil when it pertained to a woman, they would translate it to mean virtue, instead of might or strong.
