Genesis 3:16

16 To the woman he said, Multiplying, I will multiply thy pain and thy conception; in pain thou shalt bring forth children; and to thy husband thy desire, and he shall rule over thee.

Genesis 2:1-25

1 AND the heavens and the earth shall be completed and all their army. 2 And God will complete in the seventh day his work which he made, and he will rest in the seventh day from all his work which he made. 3 And God will praise the seventh day, and will consecrate it, because in it he ceased from all his works which God formed to make. 4 These the generations of the heavens and the earth in creating them, in the day of Jehovah God's making the earth and the heavens. 5 And every green thing of the field before it shall be in the earth, and every green herb of the field before it will spring up: for Jehovah God rained not upon the earth and not a man to work the earth. 6 And a vapor shall go up from the earth and it watered all the face of the earth. 7 And Jehovah God will form man of the dust from the earth, and will blow into his nostrils the breath of lives, and man shall be for a living soul. 8 And Jehovah God will plant a garden in Eden from the east; and he will put there the man which he will form. 9 And Jehovah God will cause to grow out of the earth every tree pleasant to the sight, and good for food; and the tree of lives in the midst of the garden, and the tree to know good and evil. 10 And a river shall go out from Eden to water the garden, and from thence it shall be separated into four heads. 11 The name of the one, Pison: it is that surrounding all the land Havilah, where there is gold. 12 And the gold of that land is good. There bdellium and onyx stone. 13 And the name of the second river, Gihon: that surrounding all the land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river, Hiddekel, that going forth east of Assyria. And the fourth river, Euphrates. 15 And Jehovah God will take the man and will set him down in the garden of Eden to work it and to keep it. 16 And Jehovah God will appoint to the man, saying, From every tree of the garden eating, thou shalt eat. 17 But from the tree to know good and evil thou shalt not eat from it, for in the day of thy eating from it, dying, thou shalt die. 18 And Jehovah God will say, It is not good for man to be alone; I will make for him a help as before him. 19 And Jehovah God will form out of the earth every living thing of the field, and all the birds of the heavens, and he will bring in to the man to see what he will call to it; and all which the man will call it to the living soul, that its name. 20 And the man will call the names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every living thing of the field; but to the man was not found a help as before him. 21 And Jehovah God will cause to fall a deep sleep upon the man, and he will sleep; and he will take one of his ribs and will close up the flesh underneath it 22 And Jehovah God will build the rib which he took from the man, into a woman, and will bring her to the man. 23 And the man will say, This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; and this shall be called woman, because she was taken from man. 24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and will cleave to his woman; and they shall be into one flesh. 25 And they two shall be naked, the man and his woman, and they shall not be &shamed.

1 Corinthians 11:3

3 And I will you to know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman the man; and the head of Christ God.

1 Corinthians 11:8

8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.

1 Corinthians 11:1-34

1 Be ye imitators of me, as I also of Christ. 2 And I approve you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and as I have delivered to you, do ye hold the traditions. 3 And I will you to know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman the man; and the head of Christ God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having on the head, shames his head. 5 And every woman praying or prophesying with head uncovered shames her head: for it is one and the same to her having been shaved. 6 For if the woman is not covered, let her also be shorn: and if shameful to the woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 For truly the man ought not to have the head covered, being the image and glory of God: and the woman is the glory of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 For also the man was not created through the woman; but the woman through the man. 10 Therefore the woman ought to have power upon the head for the angels. 11 But neither the man without the woman, nor the woman without the man, in the Lord. 12 For as the woman by the man, so also the man by the woman; and all things of God. 13 Judge in yourselves: is it suitable for a woman to pray to God uncovered? 14 Does not nature itself teach you, that, if a man truly have long hair, it is a dishonour to him? 15 And if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for the hair has been given her for a cloak. 16 And if any one seem to be loving strife, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. 17 And this announcing I approve not, that not for the better come ye together, but for the worse. 18 For truly first, ye coming together in the church, I hear divisions to be among you; and some part I believe. 19 For there must be also sects among you, that the tried might be made manifest among you. 20 Therefore ye coming together upon the same, it is not to eat the Lord's supper. 21 For each takes his own supper in eating: and one is truly hungry, and one is intoxicated. 22 For, have ye not houses for eating and drinking? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them not having? What should I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise not. 23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, That the Lord Jesus, in the night which he was delivered up, took bread: 24 And having given thanks, he brake, and said, Take ye, eat; this is my body, broken for you: this do ye for my remembrance. 25 Likewise the cup also, after supping, This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do ye, as often as ye drink, for my remembrance. 26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye announce the Lord's death till he come. 27 Therefore whoever should eat this bread, and drink the cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be liable to the penalty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 And let a man try himself, and so eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. 29 For he eating and drinking unworthily, eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 30 For this many among you weak and sick, and enough are asleep. 31 For if we examined ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 And being judged, we are corrected of the Lord, lest we be condemned with the world. 33 Therefore, my brethren, coming together to eat, succeed one another. 34 And if any hunger, let him eat in the house; lest ye come together for judgment. And the rest when I come I will regulate.

Ephesians 5:22

22 Women, yield ye obedience to your own husbands, as to the Lord.

1 Timothy 3:2

2 Therefore an overseer must be irreprehensible, husband of one wife, sober, of sound mind, well arranged, hospitable, giving instruction;

1 Timothy 2:15

15 And she shall be saved through the bringing forth children, if they remain in faith and love and consecration with discretion.

Titus 2:3-5

3 The aged women likewise, becoming holy in a serene state of mind, not accusers, not slaves to much wine, teachers of good; 4 That they render the young women discreet, to be lovers of the husband, lovers of the children, 5 Of sound mind chaste, remaining at home, good subordinates to their own husbands, that the word of God be not defamed.

Titus 2:4

4 That they render the young women discreet, to be lovers of the husband, lovers of the children,

1 Corinthians 14:34

34 Let your women be silent in the churches: for it has not been committed to them to speak; but to be subjected, as also says the law.

1 Timothy 2:12

12 And I trust not the woman to teach, neither to exercise authority over the man, but to be in freedom from care.
