THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

3:16Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

18:19For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

Esther (Author Ezra)

1:20And when the king's decree which he shall make shall be published throughout all his empire, (for it is great,) all the wives shall give to their husbands honour, both to great and small.

1:22For he sent letters into all the king's provinces, into every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language, that every man should bear rule in his own house, and that it should be published according to the language of every people.

1 Corinthians (Author Paul)

7:10And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:

11:3But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

11:7For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

11:8For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.

11:9Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

Ephesians (Author Paul)

5:22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

5:23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

5:24Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Colossians (Author Paul)

3:18Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

3:2A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

3:4One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

3:5(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Peter (Author Peter)

3:1Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;

3:6Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
