1 And it came to pass afterward that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and announcing the gospel of the kingdom of God, and the twelve with him,
2 and certain women, who 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's steward, and Susanna, and many others who ministered unto him of their substance.
3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of honesty;
4 that they may teach the young women to be prudent, to love their husbands, to love their children,

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his sides and closed up the flesh in its place;
22 and the LORD God built [that] which he had taken from the side of the man into a woman and brought her unto the man.

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [them] wisely, giving honour unto the woman, as unto a more fragile vessel and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers not be hindered.
The virtuous woman [is] a crown to her husband, but she that makes ashamed [is] as rottenness in his bones.
Likewise, ye wives, [be] in subjection to your own husbands, so that also those who do not obey the Word, may be won without a word by the conversation of their wives,
House and riches [are] the inheritance from fathers, but the prudent wife [is] from the LORD.
