Genesis 3:16

16 And unto the woman he said, "I will surely increase thy sorrow and make thee oft with child, and with pain shalt thou be delivered: And thy lusts shall pertain unto thy husband and he shall rule thee."

Genesis 2:1-25

1 Thus was heaven and earth finished with all their apparel: 2 and in the seventh day God ended his work which he had made and rested in the seventh day from all his works which he had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; for in it he rested from all his works which he had created and made. 4 These are the generations of heaven and earth when they were created, in the time when the LORD God created heaven and earth 5 and all the shrubs of the field before they were in the earth. And all the herbs of the field before they sprang: for the LORD God had yet sent no rain upon the earth, neither was there yet any man to till the earth. 6 But there arose a mist out of the ground and watered all the face of the earth. 7 Then the LORD God shope man, even of the mold of the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life. So man was made a living soul. 8 The LORD God also planted a garden in Eden from the beginning, and there he set man whom he had formed. 9 And the LORD God made to spring out of the earth, all manner trees beautiful to the sight and pleasant to eat; and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and also the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 10 And there sprung a river out of Eden to water the garden, and thence divided itself, and grew into four principal waters. 11 The name of the one is Pishon; he it is that compasseth all the land of Havilah, where gold groweth. 12 And the gold of that country is precious; there is found bdellium and a stone called Onyx. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon, which compasseth all the land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel, which runneth on the east side of the Assyrians; And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the LORD God took Adam and put him in the garden of Eden, to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded Adam, saying, "Of all the trees of the garden see thou eat: 17 But of the tree of knowledge of good and bad see that thou eat not: For even the same day thou eatest of it, thou shalt surely die. 18 And the LORD God said, "It is not good that man should be alone. I will make him a helper to bear him company." 19 And after that the LORD God had made of the earth all manner beasts of the field, and all manner fowls of the air, he brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them. And as Adam called all manner living beasts: even so are their names. 20 And Adam gave names unto all manner cattle, and unto the fowls of the air, and unto all manner beasts of the field. But there was no help found unto Adam to bear him company. 21 Then the LORD God cast a slumber on Adam, and he slept. And then he took out one of his ribs, and in stead thereof he filled up the place with flesh. 22 And the LORD God made of the rib which he took out of Adam, a woman, and brought her unto Adam. 23 Then said Adam, "This is once bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. This shall be called woman: because she was taken of the man." 24 For this cause shall a man leave father and mother and cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were either of them naked, both Adam and his wife, and were not ashamed.

1 Corinthians 11:3

3 I would ye knew that Christ is the head of every man; and the man is the woman's head; and God is Christ's head.

Ephesians 5:22

22 Women: submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

1 Timothy 3:2

2 Yea, and a bishop must be faultless, the husband of one wife, sober, discreet, honestly appareled, harborous, apt to teach,

1 Corinthians 11:8

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

1 Timothy 2:15

15 Notwithstanding, through bearing of children they shall be saved, so they continue in faith, love, and holiness with discretion.

1 Corinthians 11:1-34

1 Follow me as I do Christ. 2 I commend you brethren that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances even as I delivered them to you. 3 I would ye knew that Christ is the head of every man; and the man is the woman's head; and God is Christ's head. 4 Every man praying or prophesying having anything on his head, shameth his head. 5 Every woman that prayeth or prophesieth bare-headed, dishonesteth her head. For it is even all one and the very same thing, even as though she were shaven. 6 If the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn. If it be shame for a woman to be shaven or shorn, let her cover her head. 7 A man ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God. The woman is the glory of the man. 8 For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman's sake: but the woman for the man's sake. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head, for the angels' sakes. 11 Nevertheless, neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man in the Lord. 12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man by the woman: but all is of God. 13 Judge in yourselves whether it be comely that a woman pray unto God bareheaded. 14 Or else doth not nature teach you, that it is a shame for a man, if he have long hair: 15 and a praise to a woman if she have long hair? For her hair is given her to cover her withal. 16 If there be any man among you that lusteth to strife, let him know that we have no such customs, neither the congregations of God. 17 This I warn you of, and commend not that ye come together: not after a better manner but after a worse. 18 First of all, when ye come together in the congregation, I hear that there is dissension among you: And I partly believe it. 19 For there must be sects among you, that they which among you are perfect might be known. 20 When ye come together in one place, a man cannot eat the Lord's supper. 21 For every man beginneth afore to eat his own supper. And one is hungry, and another is drunken. 22 Have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? Or else despise ye the congregation of God? And shame them that have not? What shall I say unto you? Shall I praise you? In this praise I you not. 23 That which I delivered unto you I received of the Lord. For the Lord Jesus the same night in the which he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and thanked and brake, and said, "Take ye, and eat ye. This is my body which is broken for you. This do ye in the remembrance of me." 25 After the same manner he took the cup when supper was done saying, "This cup is the new testament in my blood, this do as oft as ye drink it, in the remembrance of me." 26 For as often as ye shall eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye shall show the Lord's death, till he come. 27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat of this bread, or drink of the cup unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Let a man therefore examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he that eateth or drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh his own damnation, because he maketh no difference of the Lord's body. 30 For this cause many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 If we had truly judged ourselves, we should not have been judged. 32 But when we are judged of the Lord we are chastened, because we should not be damned with the world. 33 Wherefore my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another. 34 If any man hunger, let him eat at home, that ye come not together unto condemnation. Other things will I set in order when I come.

Titus 2:3-5

3 And the elder women likewise that they be in such raiment as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much drinking, but teachers of honest things, 4 to make the young women soberminded, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be of discreet, chaste, housewifely, good, and obedient unto their own husbands, that the word of God be not evil spoken of.

Titus 2:4

4 to make the young women soberminded, to love their husbands, to love their children,

1 Timothy 2:12

12 I suffer not a woman to teach, neither to have authority over the man: but for to be in silence.

1 Corinthians 14:34

34 Let your wives keep silence in the congregations. For it is not permitted unto them to speak: but let them be under obedience, as saith the law.
