Being A Women Of God
Most Relevant Verses
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper as his complement.”
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart,
my portion forever.
Who can find a capable wife?
She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will not lack anything good. She rewards him with good, not evil,
all the days of her life.read more.
She selects wool and flax
and works with willing hands. She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from far away. She rises while it is still night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her female servants. She evaluates a field and buys it;
she plants a vineyard with her earnings. She draws on her strength
and reveals that her arms are strong. She sees that her profits are good,
and her lamp never goes out at night. She extends her hands to the spinning staff,
and her hands hold the spindle. Her hands reach out to the poor,
and she extends her hands to the needy. She is not afraid for her household when it snows,
for all in her household are doubly clothed. She makes her own bed coverings;
her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known at the city gates,
where he sits among the elders of the land. She makes and sells linen garments;
she delivers belts to the merchants. Strength and honor are her clothing,
and she can laugh at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom
and loving instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the activities of her household
and is never idle. Her sons rise up and call her blessed.
Her husband also praises her: “Many women are capable,
but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting,
but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. Give her the reward of her labor,
and let her works praise her at the city gates.
Wives, be submissive to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh.
A foolish son is his father’s ruin,
and a wife’s nagging is an endless dripping.
Better to live on the corner of a roof
than to share a house with a nagging wife.
Better to live in a wilderness
than with a nagging and hot-tempered wife.
Who can find a capable wife?
She is far more precious than jewels.
In the same way, wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, even if some disobey the Christian message, they may be won over without a message by the way their wives live when they observe your pure, reverent lives.
Also, the women are to dress themselves in modest clothing, with decency and good sense, not with elaborate hairstyles, gold, pearls, or expensive apparel, but with good works, as is proper for women who affirm that they worship God.

I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; instead, she is to be silent. For Adam was created first, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and transgressed. But she will be saved through childbearing, if she continues in faith, love, and holiness, with good judgment.
In the same way, wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, even if some disobey the Christian message, they may be won over without a message by the way their wives live when they observe your pure, reverent lives. Your beauty should not consist of outward things like elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold ornaments or fine clothes.read more.
Instead, it should consist of what is inside the heart with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very valuable in God’s eyes. For in the past, the holy women who put their hope in God also beautified themselves in this way, submitting to their own husbands, just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. You have become her children when you do what is good and are not frightened by anything alarming. Husbands, in the same way, live with your wives with an understanding of their weaker nature yet showing them honor as coheirs of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.
A capable wife is her husband’s crown,
but a wife who causes shame
is like rottenness in his bones.
In the same way, older women are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not addicted to much wine. They are to teach what is good, so they may encourage the young women to love their husbands and to love their children, to be self-controlled, pure, homemakers, kind, and submissive to their husbands, so that God’s message will not be slandered.
He said to the woman:I will intensify your labor pains;
you will bear children in anguish.
Your desire will be for your husband,
yet he will rule over you.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
