    "Virtuous" is the Hebrew word chayil which means "strong in all ways." Her price is far above rubies. A ruby is a very rare and costly gem stone. Who can find? is a rhetorical question asked for thoughtfulness. It does not mean that it is impossible to find a virtuous woman of God - it just means that they are rare. She is a rare and priceless gem. In the Bible, Ruth was described as a virtuous woman.
