Every wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her own hands.
1 Jesus and the twelve apostles traveled through cities and villages preaching the good news of the kingdom of God.
2 Traveling with him were the women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities. This included Mary Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out.
3 Also healed was Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herods steward, and Susanna. There were many others, who supported them out of their private substance.
3 Aged women likewise should be reverent in behavior and teachers of that which is good. They should not be slanderers nor enslaved to too much wine.
4 They may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 to be sober minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their own husbands, that the word of God will not be defamed dishonored.
21 Jehovah God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While he was sleeping, he took one of the mans ribs and closed up the place with flesh.
22 Then Jehovah made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man. He brought her to the man.
23 The man said: »This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called Woman. This is because she was taken out of Man.«
A gracious woman retains honor. Ruthless and violent men retain riches.
God created man in his own image. In the image of God he created him. He created male and female.
»And now, my daughter, have no fear. I will do for you whatever you say, for it is clear to all my townspeople that you are a woman of virtue.
Women in like manner must be serious, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things.
It is better to dwell alone in the wilderness than with an angry contentious quarreling and angry woman.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain. But a woman who respects Jehovah will be praised.
In the same way, you husbands live with your wives in an understanding way. Honor the woman as the weaker vessel. For you are joint-heirs of the grace of life. May your prayers not be hindered cut-offblocked.
A virtuous wife is a crown to her husband. She who acts shameful is rottenness in his bones.
In like manner, you wives, be in subjection to your own husbands. Even if your husband does not obey Gods word, he may be won without a word by observing the way you live.
Real estate and riches are the inheritance of fathers. A prudent wisesensible wife is from Jehovah.
