Proverbs on Wives

So proverbs has quite a lot to say about wives. I have a good one. How about you?

Good Wife:

1.   Finding her is like finding a treasure.

  • An excellent wife is the crown of her husband. (12:4)
  • He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD. (18:22)
  • An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. (31:10)

2.   She will bless her husband

  • House and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the LORD. (19:14)
  • The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. (31:11)
  • Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: (31:28)

3.   She has a homeward bend

  • The wisest of women builds her house…(14:1)

Bad Wife:

1.    She’s given to quarrels and fights:

  • A wife’s quarreling is a continual dripping of rain. (19:13)
  • It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife. (21:9)
  • A continual dripping on a rainy day and a quarrelsome wife are alike; (27:15)

2.   Her heart and mind are not dedicated to her husband

  • Come, let us take our fill of love till morning; let us delight ourselves with love. For my husband is not at home; he has gone on a long journey; he took a bag of money with him; at full moon he will come home. (7:18-20)
  • Who forsakes the companion of her youth and forgets the covenant of her God (2:17)
  • But she (The wife) who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones. (12:4)
