Proverbs 12:4

"A noble [chayil] wife is the crown of her husband, but the wife who acts shamefully is like rottenness in his bones. "

In Hebrew, chayil is a word used for strength, power, and virtuous. In the ancient near east, crowns were a symbol of power and authority worn by kings and queens ornamented with gold, precious stones, and jewelry. A coronation ceremony was held as the queen/king were crowned on their throne and people submitted to the will of their rulers, so in essence the virtuous wife is an honor and power to her husband.

In the Bible, bones symbolize a person's health, so in other words, the wife who shames her husband is like decay to his health.

Yes, and a wife who acts shamefully is one who will not submit.
A married woman is to submit to her husband.

Ephesians 5:22-23 says:
22 "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. 31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband."


You see, marriage is a picture of Christ and his Church.
And the Church is in submission to Christ.

Now, granted, a woman might have a husband who is not worthy of respect, but God still calls her to submit to her husband.

So, when it says: "let the wife see that she respects her husband," it means to act respectfully toward her husband, even if he is not respectable.

Even if she doesn't feel respect for him, she is still to submit and be respectful.

She does not get a free pass to be a brazen Jezebel just because her husband is not doing his job correctly.

Colossians 3:18-19 says:
18 "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them."


Again, she does not get a free pass if her husband is bitter toward her.
She is to submit to him, "as is fitting in the Lord."

God will deal with her husband. He'll either save him or damn him.
But the wife is to submit regardless.

The Apostle Peter was inspired by God to write this:
3 Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.
3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward"arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel" 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves
, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.
7 Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.

The wife should not have to submit to the husband. If she wants to, she can. Some relationships don't work like that, some women are dominant, and some men are submissive.

Your antiquated book has no relevance in our world that has modern psychology.

Well, I wonder what will hold up on Judgment Day, Hematite -- God's Word or modern psychology?

I guarantee we will find out real soon. Just you wait.

I hope, for your sake, you're saved then.

Lol which judgement day? How do you know your God doesn't prefer those of other religions and hates idiotic fundamentalists like you? A bird told me you're going straight to hell- but then, my doomsaying is just as valid as yours.

Ephesians 5:22-23 says:
22 "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. 31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband."


You see, marriage is a picture of Christ and his Church.
And the Church is in submission to Christ.

Now, granted, a woman might have a husband who is not worthy of respect, but God still calls her to submit to her husband.

So, when it says: "let the wife see that she respects her husband," it means to act respectfully toward her husband, even if he is not respectable.

Even if she doesn't feel respect for him, she is still to submit and be respectful.

She does not get a free pass to be a brazen Jezebel just because her husband is not doing his job correctly.

Colossians 3:18-19 says:
18 "Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them."


Again, she does not get a free pass if her husband is bitter toward her.
She is to submit to him, "as is fitting in the Lord."

God will deal with her husband. He'll either save him or damn him.
But the wife is to submit regardless.

The Apostle Peter was inspired by God to write this:
3 Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.
3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward"arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel" 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves
, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.
7 Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.


The wife should not have to submit to the husband. If she wants to, she can. Some relationships don't work like that, some women are dominant, and some men are submissive.

Your antiquated book has no relevance in our world that has modern psychology.

Well, I wonder what will hold up on Judgment Day, Hematite -- God's Word or modern psychology?

I guarantee we will find out real soon. Just you wait.

I hope, for your sake, you're saved then.
Pfft. I love nothing more than a woman who can kick my arse. That takes character. Oh and King Yama will be just fine.

LOL!!!! Yama!
