Biblical References for these Characteristics?

Question: I'm creating a Bible study on the Proverbs 31. I have a list of 19 adjectives that describe a "woman of noble character." I'm trying to find a biblical example of each word. Any ideas? Here's the list:

  1. Trustworthy
  2. Good-natured
  3. Hard-working
  4. Domestic
  5. Committed
  6. Caring
  7. Financially Astute
  8. Strong 
  9. Wise
  10. Decisive
  11. Well-Kept
  12. Supportive
  13. Social/Influential
  14. Honorable
  15. Joyful
  16. Kind/Compassionate
  17. Responsible
  18. Praiseworthy
  19. God-fearing
 Thanks a bunch!
  
My Reply:
Wow dude, you've got a lot of words there!  I'm not sure if you're looking for NT or OT references, and there are tons for these words. But here are some that I thought might help, if not spark some other references for you:
  1. Trustworthy = Daniel 6:4
  2. Good-natured = 
  3. Hard-working = Genesis 29:20
  4. Domestic = 
  5. Committed = Genesis 29:28
  6. Caring = John 15:13-17
  7. Financially Astute = 
  8. Strong = Judges 6 (Gideon)
  9. Wise = 1 Corinthians 1 & 2 (God's wisdom vs. world's wisdom)
  10. Decisive = Daniel 1:8
  11. Well-kept = 
  12. Supportive = Ruth 1:16-18 (also fits w/ committed)
  13. Social / Influential = 1 Cor. 1:26 / Gen. 19
  14. Honorable = 2 Kings 5:1
  15. Joyful = Luke 1:64
  16. Kind / Compassionate = 1 Kings 3:26 / Matt. 9:36
  17. Responsible = Genesis 39:8
  18. Praiseworthy = 1 Samuel 25 (Abigail)
  19. God-fearing = Acts 10, Daniel 1:8
Hope this helps some.
