Truth from the Bible about Wives

(Proverbs 18:22 KJV)
(22) {Whoso} findeth a wife findeth a good {thing}, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

(1 Peter 3:1-7 KJV)
(1) Likewise, 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; (2) While they behold your chaste conversation {coupled} with fear. (3) Whose adorning let it not be that outward {adorning} of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; (4) 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. (5) 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: (6) Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. (7) 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.

(Ecclesiastes 9:9 KJV)
(9) Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that {is} thy portion in {this} life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.

(1 Corinthians 7:3 KJV)
(3) Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

(Proverbs 5:18-19 KJV)
(18) Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. (19) {Let her be as} the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

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

(Psalms 128:3 KJV)
(3) Thy wife {shall be} as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

(Ephesians 5:21-33 KJV)
(21) Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. (22) Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. (23) For 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. (24) Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so {let} the wives {be} to their own husbands in every thing. (25) Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, (27) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. (28) So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. (29) For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: (30) For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. (31) For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. (32) This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (33) Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife {see} that she reverence {her} husband.

(Proverbs 31:10-31 KJV)
(10) Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price {is} far above rubies. (11) The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. (12) She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. (13) She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. (14) She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. (15) She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. (16) She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. (17) She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. (18) She perceiveth that her merchandise {is} good: her candle goeth not out by night. (19) She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. (20) She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. (21) She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household {are} clothed with scarlet. (22) She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing {is} silk and purple. (23) Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. (24) She maketh fine linen, and selleth {it}; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. (25) Strength and honour {are} her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. (26) She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue {is} the law of kindness. (27) She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. (28) Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband {also}, and he praiseth her. (29) Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. (30) Favour {is} deceitful, and beauty {is} vain: {but} a woman {that} feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. (31) Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

(Proverbs 12:4 KJV)
(4) A virtuous woman {is} a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed {is} as rottenness in his bones.

(Proverbs 14:1 KJV)
(1) Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.

(Proverbs 19:14 KJV)
(14) House and riches {are} the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife {is} from the Lord.
