“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm all the days of her life.” Prov. 31:10-12
“Like wise, 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 conversion of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adoring let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”
For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:” I Peter 3:1-5
“Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous;
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing; but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.” I Peter 3:7-9
