Proverbs 31 and the Church

Chad Ashby suggests here that Proverbs 31 should be mainly applied to the Church. The dogmatic subtitle states, "The ‘wife of noble character’ is rarely applied to whom it was meant to describe." Unfortunately such a meaning would be quite foreign to the original Israelite audience. One might tease out implications for the Church from Proverbs 31 but to go there running roughshod over the original meaning is problematic at best.
