Eshet Chayil – Torah of Love

“She opens her mouth with wisdom, and a lesson of kindness is on her tongue.”
Rabbi Elazar asked, “Is there a Torah of Kindness and a Torah that is not of kindness? We must say that Torah studied “Lishma,” with love of God, is a Torah of kindness, and that Torah studied without love of God is a Torah without kindness.” (Succah 49b)

Rabbi Elazar understands this verse as describing a woman who constantly functions with a deep sense of love of God.
