NET © Notes

tn The first word of the eighteenth line begins with צ (tsade), the eighteenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

sn The expression bread of idleness refers to food that is gained through idleness, perhaps given or provided for her. In the description of the passage one could conclude that this woman did not have to do everything she did; and this line affirms that even though she is well off, she will eat the bread of her industrious activity.
