Bible Verses about wives submit to Husbands (Respect & Obey them)

Last updated on June 28th, 2020 at 03:34 am

Over the past century, a lot has changed about our understanding of marriage.

In fact, there are a lot of women who are striving for equal rights in marriage.

They believe that a woman should be at the forefront of marriage making all the decisions.

While this is a good idea, it also has its challenges — It is unscriptural.

Instead, there are Bible Verses about wives submitting to their husband’s authority.

As a married woman, you must respect and obey your husband.

The man is the undisputed head of the family in God’s plan.

And it has been so from the beginning of the world.

The truth is, as Christians, we must guide our every step with the word of God.

If we don’t, we will be misinformed by the devil easily.

“Submissiveness” in the scriptures is a command; but with love, it spontaneously occurs.

You will find that as you love yourselves in marriage, your heart will naturally be submissive to each other.

I do a lot of household chores for my wife and I am happy doing it.

Likewise, she respects and obeys my decisions.

I have put together bible verses about wives submitting to husbands to help you.

Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands,

Then when the king’s edict is proclaimed throughout all his vast realm, all the women will respect their husbands, from the least to the greatest.”

    and a quarrelsome wife is like
    the constant dripping of a leaky roof.

A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her female servants.

Proverbs 14:1

The wise woman builds her house,
    but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
