Every wise woman builds her house: but the foolish plucks it down with her hands.
1 And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,
2 And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils,
3 And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod' steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered to him of their substance.
3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her to the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
A gracious woman retains honor: and strong men retain riches.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to you all that you require: for all the city of my people does know that you are a virtuous woman.
Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that makes ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
Likewise, you wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.
