GODLY women

 Proverbs 31:30

King James Version

30 Favour is deceitful, 

and beauty is vain: 

but a woman that feareth the Lord, 

she shall be praised.

What is a godly woman?

What makes her so?

Scripture has the answers:

Proverbs 11:16

King James Version

16 A gracious woman retaineth honour

and strong men retain riches.

Proverbs 12:4

King James Version

4 A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband

but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

Proverbs 19:14

King James Version

14 House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: 

and a prudent wife is from the Lord.

Proverbs 31:10

King James Version

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? 

for her price is far above rubies.

Luke 10:38-42

King James Version

38 Now it came to pass, 

as they went, 

that he entered into a certain village: 

and a certain woman named Martha 

received him into her house.

39 And she had a sister called Mary, 

which also sat at Jesus' feet, 

and heard his word.

40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, 

and came to him, 

and said, 


dost thou not care 

that my sister hath left me to serve alone? 

bid her therefore that she help me.

41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, 

Martha, Martha, 

thou art careful and troubled about many things:

42 But one thing is needful: 

and Mary hath chosen that good part, 

which shall not be taken away from her.

John 8:10-11

King James Version

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, 

and saw none but the woman, 

he said unto her, 


where are those thine accusers? 

hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, 

No man, Lord. 

And Jesus said unto her, 

Neither do I condemn thee: 

go, and sin no more.

Ephesians 5:22-24

King James Version

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.

Colossians 3:18

King James Version

18 Wives, 

submit yourselves unto your own husbands, 

as it is fit in the Lord.

1 Timothy 2:9-10

King James Version

9 In like manner also, 

that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, 

with shamefacedness and sobriety; 

not with broided hair, 

or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

10 But (which becometh women professing godliness)

 with good works.

1 Timothy 2:11-15

King James Version

11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, 

nor to usurp authority over the man, 

but to be in silence.

13 For Adam was first formed, 

then Eve.

14 And Adam was not deceived, 

but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, 

if they continue in faith and charity 

and holiness with sobriety.

1 Timothy 3:11

King James Version

11 Even so must their wives be grave, 

not slanderers, 


faithful in all things.

Titus 2:3-5

King James Version

3 The aged women likewise, 

that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, 

not false accusers, 

not given to much wine, 

teachers of good things;

4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, 

to love their husbands, 

to love their children,

5 To be discreet, 


keepers at home, 


obedient to their own husbands, 

that the word of God be not blasphemed.

1 Peter 3:1

King James Version

3 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;

1 Peter 3:3-5

King James Version

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:
