I think that the book of Proverbs answers this very well. Chapter 31, the words of King Lemuel, thought to be a symbolic name for Solomon, verses 10-31 gives several virtues. The alphabetical poem starts each verse with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

This also may be understood as a description of wisdom.

Other verses see Proverbs 18:22, 19:14.

To contrast these virtues see verses 11:22; 19:13; 21:9,19; 25:24; 27:15; and 31:3.

The ideal wife is a woman of character (Prov. 31:10-12). She possesses rare virtue and noble character “worth far more than rubies” (Prov. 31:10). She is trustworthy and faithful (Prov. 31:11). People who know her well have full confidence in her. She is full of goodness and does not harm others (Prov. 31:12). She isn’t afraid to work (Prov 31:13-22, 24). She is capable (Prov. 31:13, 19, 22), an eager and willing worker (Prov. 31:13), resourceful (Prov. 31:14, 16, 21). Also, she’s diligent (Prov. 31:15, 17, 18, 27), a provider for everyone in her care (Prov. 31:15), financially conscientious (Pr 31:16, 18), and strong (Prov. 31:17, 25). 

She is compassionate and generous (Prov. 31:20). She facilitates her husband working (Prov. 31:23). She’s confident facing the future (Prov. 31:25), i.e. she’s prepared for the future (Prov. 31:21, 25). She’s a capable teacher of wisdom (Prov. 31:26). She’s an attentive overseer of her house (Prov. 31:27). She’s worthy of praise (Prov. 31:28-29). Her secret is fearing the Lord (Prov. 31:30). She’s a testimony to others (Prov. 31:31). 

A wife has some legal rights (Exodus 21:20) and duties (Prov. 31:10-31; 1 Timothy 5:14), domestic duties (Genesis 18:6; Prov. 31:13-27).
