The three Rangers sat round the fire scowling over their task.

“I miss my mother,” said Halbarad.

“So do I,” said Aragorn.

“I mean to get married soon,” said the youngest.

“As chieftain I will be happy to perform the ceremony,” said Aragorn. “I did not know you had a sweetheart, though. You are very young yet to wed, Gilavir.”

“Who is the fortunate maiden?” asked Halbarad.

“I’ve no idea,” said the lad, frowning as he dropped a stitch. "She can be young or old, fair or homely. All that matters to me is that she can knit socks!”

 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

Proverbs 31 - 10-13
