Bible & Inspirational Quotes
And Adam said, This is now bone of
my bones, and flesh of my flesh:
she shall be called Woman, because
she was taken out of Man.

father and his mother, and shall
cleave unto his wife: and they
shall be one flesh.
Drink waters out of thine own
cistern, and running waters out of
thine own well. Let thy fountains
be dispersed abroad, and rivers of
waters in the streets. Let them be
only thine own, and not strangers'
with thee. Let thy fountain be
blessed: and rejoice with the wife
of thy youth. 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.
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

For the unbelieving husband is
sanctified by the wife, and the
unbelieving wife is sanctified by
the husband: else were your
children unclean; but now are they
holy. For what knowest thou, O
wife, whether thou shalt save thy
husband? or how knowest thou, O
man, whether thou shalt save thy
wife? But he that is married
careth for the things that are of
the world, how he may please his
(1 Corinthians 7:3,14,16,33)

Wives, submit yourselves unto your
own husbands, as unto the Lord.
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. Therefore as
the church is subject unto Christ,
so let the wives be to their own
husbands in every thing. Husbands,
love your wives, even as Christ
also loved the church, and gave
himself for it; That he might
sanctify and cleanse it with the
washing of water by the word, 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. So ought men to love
their wives as their own bodies.

shall be joined unto his wife, and
they two shall be one flesh. This
is a great mystery: but I speak
concerning Christ and the church.
Nevertheless let every one of you
in particular so love his wife
even as himself; and the wife see
