Genesis 3:16

16 (3:17) And to the woman He said, I will greatly multiply your pains and your groanings; in pain you shall bring forth children, and your submission shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over you.

Genesis 2:1-25

1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and the whole host of them. 2 And God finished on the sixth day His works which He made, and He ceased on the seventh day from all His works which He made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He ceased from all His works which God began to do. 4 This is the book of the generations of heaven and earth, when they were made, in the day in which the Lord God made the heaven and the earth, 5 and every herb of the field before it was on the earth, and all the grass of the field before it sprang up, for God had not rained on the earth, and there was not a man to cultivate it. 6 But there rose a fountain out of the earth, and watered the whole face of the earth. 7 And God formed the man of the dust of the earth, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. 8 And God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and placed there the man whom He had formed. 9 And God made to spring up also out of the earth every tree beautiful to the eye and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 And a river proceeded out of Eden to water the garden, and it divided itself there into four heads. 11 The name of the one is Pishon, this it is which encircles the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 And the gold of that land is good, there also is carbuncle and emerald. 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon, this it is which encircles the whole land of Ethiopia. 14 And the third river is Tigris, this is that which flows forth over against the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the Lord God took the man whom He had formed, and placed him in the garden of Delight, to cultivate and keep it. 16 And the Lord God gave a charge to Adam, saying, Of every tree which is in the garden you may freely eat, 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil — of it you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die. 18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone, let Us make for him a helper suitable to him. 19 And God formed yet farther out of the earth all the wild beasts of the field, and all the birds of the sky, and He brought them to Adam, to see what he would call them, and whatever Adam called any living creature, that was the name of it. 20 And Adam gave names to all the cattle and to all the birds of the sky, and to all the wild beasts of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to himself. 21 And God brought a trance upon Adam, and he slept, and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 And God formed the rib which he took from Adam into a woman, and brought her to Adam. 23 And Adam said, This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of her husband. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. 25 (3:1) And the two were naked, both Adam and his wife, and were not ashamed

1 Corinthians 11:3

3 But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

Ephesians 5:22

22 Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Lord,

1 Corinthians 11:8

8 For man is not from woman, but woman from man.

1 Corinthians 11:1-34

1 Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ. 2 Now I praise you, brothers, because you remember me in all things, and you hold fast the traditions just as I handed down to you. 3 But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man who prays or who prophesies with his head covered, dishonors his head. 5 But every woman who prays or who prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her own head, for that is one and the same as if her head were shaved. 6 For if a woman is not covered, let her also have her hair cut. But if it is a shameful thing for a woman to have her hair cut, or to be shaved, let her be covered. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. 8 For man is not from woman, but woman from man. 9 Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for the man. 10 Because of this, the woman ought to have a symbol of authority upon her head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, neither is the man apart from the woman, nor the woman apart from the man, in the Lord. 12 For as the woman is from the man, even so the man is by the woman; but all things are of God. 13 Judge among yourselves. Is it proper for a woman to pray to God uncovered? 14 Does not nature itself teach you, that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him? 15 But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory for her; because her long hair has been given to her in place of a covering. 16 But if anyone seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God. 17 Now in giving these instructions I do not praise you, because you are not coming together for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when you come together in church, I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. 19 For there must also be sects among you, in order that those who are approved may become recognized among you. 20 Therefore when you assemble in the same place, it is not to eat the Lord's Supper. 21 For when you eat, each one takes first his own supper, and one goes hungry and another is drunk! 22 What? Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God, and disgrace those who do not have? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you! 23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered unto you: that the Lord Jesus, during the night in which He was betrayed, took bread; 24 and having given thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body which has been broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me." 25 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes. 27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord irreverently will be guilty of the body of the Lord and of the blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and in this way let him eat from the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For he that eats and drinks irreverently eats and drinks judgment to himself, not judging correctly the body of the Lord. 30 Because of this many among you are weak and sick, and many have died. 31 For if we judge ourselves correctly, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord, in order that we may not be condemned with the world. 33 Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And the rest I will put in order when I come.

1 Timothy 2:15

15 Nevertheless she shall be saved through childbirth, if they remain in faith and love, and sanctification, with self-control.

Titus 2:3-5

3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teaching what is good, 4 so that they may urge the young women to be lovers of their husbands, lovers of their children, 5 temperate, pure, homemakers, good, submitting to their own husbands, lest the word of God be blasphemed.

Titus 2:4

4 so that they may urge the young women to be lovers of their husbands, lovers of their children,

34 let your women be silent in the churches, for it has not been permitted for them to speak, but to be in subjection, just as the law also says.
