1 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him,
2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out;
3 Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.
3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.

21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs "and then closed up the place with flesh.
22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib "he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.
Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives,
Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD.
