Genesis 38:8-10

8 Whereupon Judas said to Aunan, Go in unto thy brother's wife and be a husband to her and raise up a seed for thy brother. 9 But when Aunan knew that the seed would not be his, it came to pass that when he went in unto his brother's wife he shed it on the ground; that he might not give seed to his brother. 10 And it appeared evil in the sight of God that he had done this, therefore he caused him also to die.

Genesis 2:4-3:24

4 This is the genealogy of heaven and earth. When they were made, on the day when the Lord God had made the heaven and the earth, 5 and all the verdure of the field, before it was on the earth, and every herb of the field, before it sprang up, [for God had not rained on the earth, nor was there a man to till it; 6 but a fountain ascended out of the earth and watered the whole face of the ground,] 7 then God formed the man, dust from the earth, and breathed upon his face a breath of life, and the man became a living soul. 8 And God planted a garden in Eden towards the east and placed there the man whom he had made. 9 And God caused to spring up there also out of that ground every tree beautiful to the sight and good for food, and the tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree for the purpose of knowing what was to be known of good and evil. 10 Now a river issueth out of Eden to water the garden: thence it is divided into four heads. 11 The name of the first is Physon. This is that which encircleth the whole country Evilat, where there is gold, 12 and the gold of that country is good. There also is the carbuncle and the Prasian stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Geon. This is that which encircleth the whole country of Ethiopia. 14 And the third river is Tigris. This is that which floweth down over against the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the Lord God took the man whom he had made, and placed him in this garden of pleasure to work it and to watch. 16 And the Lord God gave a charge to Adam, saying, "Of every tree which is in the garden for food, thou mightest have eaten; 17 but from this tree, that you may know good and evil, you must not eat of it. On the day you eat of it, by death you shall die." 18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone: let us make for him a helper correspondent to himself." 19 Now God had also formed out of the earth all the beasts of the field, and all the birds of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called every living creature; that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all the cattle, and to all the fowls of the air, and to all the wild beasts of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper like himself. 21 Then God brought an ecstasy upon Adam and caused him to sleep, and took one of his ribs and filled up flesh instead thereof. 22 And God built up 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, let her be called woman." Because she was taken out of her man, 24 therefore a man is to leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Genesis 3:1-24

1 Now the two, both Adam and his wife were naked, and were not ashamed. But the serpent was the wisest of all the beasts on the earth which the Lord God had made, and the serpent said to the woman, "Why hath God said, you must not eat of every tree of the garden?" 2 And the woman said to the serpent, "Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God said, You shall not eat of it, nor touch it, that you may not die." 4 And the serpent said to the woman, "You will not by death die. 5 For God knew that in the day you eat thereof, your eyes would be opened and you would be like gods knowing good and evil." 6 And the woman saw that the tree was good for food; and that it is delightful to see with the eyes; and that to exercise understanding is comely, so having taken some of the fruit thereof, she ate and gave also to her husband with her. And when they had eaten, 7 the eyes of them both were opened, and they perceived that they were naked. And they sewed together fig leaves and made for themselves girdles. 8 And when they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the evening, both Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God, among the trees of the garden. 9 And the Lord God called Adam and said to him, "Adam, where art thou?" 10 And he said to him, "I heard the sound of thee walking in the garden and I was afraid, because I am naked, and I hid myself." 11 And God said to him, "Who told thee that thou art naked, if so be thou hast not eaten of the tree of which alone I commanded thee not to eat of this?" 12 And Adam said, "The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree and I did eat." 13 And the Lord God said to the woman, "Why hast thou done this?" And the woman said, "The serpent seduced me and I ate." 14 And the Lord God said to the serpent, "Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed from all the cattle and from all the beasts which are upon the earth. Upon thy breast and belly thou shalt go and shalt eat earth all the days of thy life. 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman; and between thy seed and her seed. He will wound thy head, and thou wilt wound his heel." 16 And to the woman he said, "I will greatly multiply thy sorrows and thy anguish. With sorrows thou shalt bear children and to thy husband shall be thy recourse, and he shall rule over thee." 17 And to Adam he said, "Because thou hast hearkened to the voice of thy wife, and eaten of the tree of which alone I commanded thee not to eat, the ground is cursed by thy labours. With sorrows thou shalt eat of it all the days of thy life. 18 Thorns and thistles it shall cause to spring up for thee, and thou shalt eat the herbs of the field. 19 By the sweat of thy face thou shalt eat thy bread until thou return into the earth out of which thou wast taken; for earth thou art and to earth thou shalt return." 20 And Adam called the name of his wife Life, because she was to be the mother of all the living. 21 And the Lord God made for Adam and his wife garments of skin and cloathed them. 22 And God said, "Behold Adam was made like one of us to know good and evil. And now perhaps he may stretch forth his hand and take of the tree of life and eat, so shall he live forever." 23 So the Lord God sent him out of the garden of pleasure to till the ground out of which he was taken. 24 And when he put Adam out he caused him to dwell over against the garden of pleasure and stationed the Cherubim and the whirling flame of fire to keep the way to the tree of life.

Genesis 38:1-30

1 Now at that time Judas went down from his brothers and came to a certain Odollamite whose name was Eiras. 2 And Judas saw there a daughter of a Chananite, her name was Sava. And he took her and went in unto her 3 and she conceived and bore a son and called his name Er. 4 And she conceived again and bore a son and called his name Aunan. 5 And she bore another son and called his name Selom. Now she was at Chasbi when she bore them. 6 And for Er his first born Judas took a wife whose name was Thamar. 7 But Er the first born of Judas was wicked in the sight of the Lord, and God slew him. 8 Whereupon Judas said to Aunan, Go in unto thy brother's wife and be a husband to her and raise up a seed for thy brother. 9 But when Aunan knew that the seed would not be his, it came to pass that when he went in unto his brother's wife he shed it on the ground; that he might not give seed to his brother. 10 And it appeared evil in the sight of God that he had done this, therefore he caused him also to die. 11 Then Judas said to Thamar his daughter in law, Continue a widow in thy father's house till my son Selom grow up. For he said, Peradventure he also may die as his brothers did. So Thamar went and dwelt at her father's house. 12 But the time was prolonged and Sava the wife of Judas died. And when Judas was comforted he went up to his sheep shearers, he and his shepherd Eiras the Odollamite, to Thamna. 13 And it was told Thamar his daughter in law saying, Lo! thy father in law is going up to Thamna to shear his sheep. 14 Whereupon she put off the robes of her widowhood and put on a veil and adorned herself and sat near the gates of Ainan in the way to Thamna. For she saw that Selom was grown up and that he had not given her to him for a wife. 15 And when Judas saw her, he thought she was a harlot, for she had covered her face 16 and he did not know her. So he turned aside to her and said to her, Let me come in unto thee. For he did not know that she was his daughter in law. And she said, What wilt thou give me if thou come in unto me? 17 To which he replied, I will send thee a kid of the goats from the flock. And she said, Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it? 18 And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy ring and bracelet and the staff in thy hand. So he gave them to her, and went in unto her, and she conceived by him. 19 Then she arose and went away, and took off her veil and put on the garments of her widowhood. 20 And Judas sent the kid of the goats by the hands of his shepherd the Odollamite to receive from the woman the pledge. 21 But he not finding her asked the men of the place, Where is the harlot that was at Ainan by the way side? And they said, There was not a harlot there. 22 Thereupon he returned to Judas and said, I have not found her. And the men of the place said there was not a harlot there. 23 Then Judas said, Let her keep them. But perhaps we may be laughed at. I indeed sent the kid. Thou however hast not found her. 24 Now after three months it was told Judas saying, Thamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot, and lo! she is with child by her whoredom. Whereupon Judas said, Bring her out and let her be burned. 25 And when she was brought out she sent to her father in law saying, By the man to whom these belong I am with child. Moreover she said, Examine, whose is this ring and this bracelet and this staff? 26 And Judas acknowledged them and said, Thamar hath more justice on her side than I, because I did not give her to my son Selom. And he proceeded no more to have knowledge of her. 27 And when the time of her delivery came she had twins. 28 And when she was in child birth, one put forth its hand, and the midwife took and tied a scarlet thread about its hand, saying, This will be the first born. 29 But when it had drawn back its hand, his brother immediately came forth. Whereupon she said, What! Hath there been a breach made for thee? So she called his name Phares. 30 And after this his brother came forth, on whose hand was the scarlet thread. So she called his name Zara.

Genesis 18:9-16

9 And be said to Abraham, Where is Sarah thy wife? And Abraham said, Behold! in the tent. 10 Then he said, I will return and come to thee about this time twelve month, and Sarah thy wife will have a son. And Sarah heard, being at the door of the tent behind them. 11 [Now Abraham and Sarah were far advanced in life, and it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.] 12 And Sarah smiled within herself, saying, It hath never been so with me even to this time, and my lord is old. 13 And the Lord said to Abraham, Why did Sarah smile within herself, saying, Shall I indeed bring forth? I who am old? 14 Can any thing be impossible with God? About this time twelve month I will return to thee, and Sarah shall have a son. 15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I did not smile, for she was terrified. And he said to her, Nay, but thou didst smile. 16 Then the men arose and directed their course towards Sodom and Gomorra, and Abraham went with them to conduct them on the way.

Leviticus 12:2-5

2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a woman hath conceived, and brought forth a male, she shall be unclean seven days. During her days of separation for her lying in she shall be unclean. 3 And on the eighth day she shall circumcise the flesh of his foreskin, 4 and continue thirty three days in her impurity. She shall not touch any thing that is hallowed, nor come to the sanctuary, until the days of her purification be compleated. 5 But if she hath brought forth a female, she shall be unclean twice seven days for her lying in, and shall continue sixty six days in her impurity.

Leviticus 20:9

Numbers 5:11-31

11 Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 12 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, If any man's wife transgress, and actually despise him; 13 and any person lie with her carnally, and it escape the notice of her husband, and it be hid, and she be polluted, though there be no witness against her, and she be not caught in the act; 14 and a spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be polluted; or a spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, though she be not polluted, 15 the man shall bring his wife to the priest, and shall bring as a gift for her the tenth of an ephah of barley meal; but he shall pour no oil on it, nor lay any frankincense on it; for it is a sacrifice of jealousy; a sacrifice of remembrance, to bring into remembrance a sin. 16 And the priest shall bring her forward, and set her before the Lord. 17 Then the priest shall take pure spring water, in an earthen vessel, and having taken up some of the dust which is on the floor of the tabernacle of the testimony, the priest shall put it in the water. 18 And the priest shall present the woman before the Lord, and uncover the woman's head. Then he shall put the sacrifice of remembrance; the sacrifice of jealousy into her hands; and in the hand of the priest shall be the water of discovery over which an imprecation is to be made; 19 and the priest shall adjure the woman, and say to her, If no man hath lain with thee; if thou hast not transgressed, so as to be defiled, while under the jurisdiction of thy husband; be thou uninjured by this water of discovery, over which an imprecation is to be made: 20 but if thou hast transgressed, being a married woman, or art polluted, and any person besides thy husband hath lain with thee, 21 [then the priest shall adjure the woman with solemn imprecations, and the priest shall say to the woman] the Lord make thee a curse and an imprecation in the midst of thy people, by causing thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to be inflamed. 22 Let this water over which this imprecation is made, go into thy belly, to inflame thy belly, and rot thy thigh. And the woman shall say, Amen, Amen. 23 Then the priest shall write these curses in a book, and dip it in the water of discovery, over which the imprecation was made, 24 and shall cause the woman to drink the water of discovery, over which the imprecation was made. And the water of discovery, over which the imprecation was made, shall go into her; 25 [The priest shall take the sacrifice of jealousy out of the woman's hand, and lay the sacrifice before the Lord, and offer it on the altar; 26 and when the priest shall have taken a handful of the sacrifice, the memorial of it, and offered it on the altar, after this he shall cause the woman to drink the water] 27 and it shall come to pass that if she be defiled, and escape the notice of her husband, when the water of discovery, over which the imprecation was made, shall go into her, it shall inflame her belly, and her thigh shall rot, and the woman shall be a curse among her people. 28 But if the woman be not polluted, and be pure, she shall be uninjured, and shall conceive seed. 29 This is the law of jealousy, when a woman who is married transgresseth and is polluted; 30 or when a spirit of jealousy cometh on a man. When he is jealous of her, and shall set his wife before the Lord, the priest shall do to her all that this law directeth; 31 so shall the man be free from sin, and the woman shall bear her iniquity.

Numbers 27:1-11

1 Then came the daughters of Salpaad, son of Opher, son of Galaad, son of Machir, of the community of Manasses, one of the sons of Joseph [now these were their names; Maala, and Nua, and Egla, and Melcha, and Thersa] 2 and standing before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the chiefs, and before the whole congregation, at the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, they said, 3 Our father died in the wilderness, but he was not among the congregation which conspired against the Lord, in the assembly of Kore. Because he died for his own sin, and had no sons, 4 let not the name of our father be blotted out from among his community. Seeing he hath not a son, give us a possession among our father's brethren. 5 Whereupon Moses laid their case before the Lord. 6 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 7 The daughters of Salpaad have spoken right. Thou shalt give them the possession of an inheritance among their father's brothers, and vest in them their father's lot. 8 And thou shalt say to the children of Israel, If any man die, and hath no son, you shall vest his inheritance in his daughter; 9 and if he hath no daughter, you shall give his inheritance to his brother; and if he hath no brothers, you shall 10 give his inheritance to his father's brother; 11 and if there be no brothers of his father, you shall give the inheritance to one of his house, who is the nearest of kin to him, of his tribe, that he may inherit what belonged to him. And this shall be to the children of Israel a rule of decision, as the Lord commanded Moses.

Numbers 30:2-15

2 If any man vow a vow to the Lord, or swear an oath, or bind himself with a solemn promise concerning his soul, he shall not break his word. Whatever hath proceeded from his mouth he shall do. 3 And if a woman vow to the Lord, or bind herself with a solemn promise, in her father's house, in her youth; 4 and her father hear her vows, and her promises with which she hath bound her soul, and hold his peace at her; all her vows, and all the promises with which she bound her soul, shall stand. 5 They shall be binding on her. But if her father expressly disapprove on the day he heareth her vows and the promises, with which she hath bound her soul, they shall not stand. And the Lord will acquit her because her father hath disallowed her. 6 And if she be married, and vows be upon her; according to the opening of her lips; with what promises soever she may have bound her soul, 7 if her husband shall hear, and hold his peace at her on the day when he heareth, so shall all her vows stand, and the promises shall stand with which she hath bound her soul. 8 But if her husband expressly disallow her on the day when he shall hear, none of her vows, and none of the obligations with which she hath bound her soul, shall be binding, because her husband disallowed her. And the Lord will acquit her. 9 But the vows of a widow, or of one divorced; whatever vows she may have made to bind her soul, shall stand against her. 10 And if her vow, or the obligation with which she bound her soul with an oath, be made in her husband's house; 11 and her husband shall hear, and hold his peace at her, and not disallow her; all her vows and all her promises with which she hath bound her soul shall stand against her. 12 But if her husband on the day when he heareth, actually disannul all that may have proceeded out of her lips, of what nature soever her vows may be, or the obligations with which she bound her soul, they shall not be binding on her. Her husband hath made them void, and the Lord will acquit her. 13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict her soul, her husband may establish, or make void. 14 And if lie hold his peace at her, day after day, he shall establish upon her all her vows, and confirm the obligations upon her, because he held his peace at her on the day he heard them. 15 And if her husband disannul them after the day when he heard, he shall bear the sin of this.

Deuteronomy 22:22

22 If a man be found lying with a woman who is married, you shall put them both to death; both the man who lay with the woman, and the woman. So shalt thou take away evil from Israel.

Deuteronomy 22:13-21

13 If any man take a wife, and cohabit with her, and hate her, 14 and spread groundless reports concerning her, and give her an ill name, and say, I took this woman to wife, but when I came to her, I did not find her tokens of virginity; 15 thereupon the father and mother of the damsel taking the tokens of their child's virginity, shall carry them to the senate, to the gate. 16 And the father of the girl shall say to the senate, I gave this my daughter to that man for a wife; but he now hateth her, 17 and hath spread groundless reports concerning her, saying, I found not the tokens of virginity in thy daughter. Now these are the proofs of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the garment before the senate of the city. 18 Whereupon the senate of the city shall take the man, and chastise him, 19 and fine him a hundred shekels, and give them to the father of the young woman, because he brought an ill name on a virgin of Israel; and she shall be his wife. He shall not be at liberty to put her away all his days. 20 But if his accusation be founded in truth, and proofs of virginity cannot be found for the young woman, 21 they shall carry out the young woman to the doors of her father's house, and stone her with stones, till she die, because she hath committed folly in Israel, by making her father's house a place of prostitution. So thou shalt remove evil from among you.

Deuteronomy 22:28-30

28 If any man find a young woman, who is not betrothed, and by force lie with her, and be found, 29 the man who hath lain with her shall pay the father of the young woman fifty didrachms of silver, and she shall be his wife: because he hath humbled her, he shall not be at liberty to put her away, all the days of his life. 30 A man shall not take his father's wife, nor uncover his father's skirt.

Deuteronomy 24:1-4

1 If any one hath taken a wife, and cohabited with her, and it should happen that she hath not found favour in his sight, because he hath found something unseemly in her, he may write her a bill of divorce, and put it into her hands, and send her away from his house. 2 And having gone away, she may become another man's wife. 3 But if her last husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorce and put it in her hands and send her away from his house; or if her last husband, who hath taken her to wife, die; 4 her former husband, who put her away, shall not be at liberty to return and take her again to wife; for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God; and you must not defile the land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for a possession.

Ecclesiastes 7:26-28

26 That bitterer than death is that whole class of women who are prostitutes. Though their heart is nets and their hands chains, he who is good in the sight of God shall be delivered from them; but a sinner shall be taken by them. 27 Behold this I found [said the preacher] 28 examining them one by one to find a class which my soul earnestly sought, but I did not find: though I found one man of a thousand, yet a woman among all these I did not find: but behold this I found, that

Mark 3:31-35

31 therefore his brethren, and his mother come, and having stood without, sent for him, 32 as the multitude sat around him. And when they said to him, Behold thy mother and thy brethren are Who had just come in from the crowd at the gate, without, inquiring for thee, 33 he answered them, saying, Who is my mother? And who are my brethren? 34 Then looking round on them who sat about him, he saith, Behold my mother and my brethren! 35 For whosoever will do the will of God, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Luke 14:26

26 If any one cometh to me, and slighteth not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, nay, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.

1 Corinthians 14:34-35

34 let your women be silent in these congregations: for they are not permitted to talk, but to be in subjection, as the law also saith: 35 And if they wish to learn any thing let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for women to talk in a congregation.

Proverbs 6:20-7:27

20 My son, keep the laws of thy father, and reject not the maxims of thy mother. 21 Bind them continually on thy mind: and tie them as a chain around thy neck. 22 When thou walkest, take this along and let it be with thee: and when thou sleepest, let it guard thee; that when thou awakest, it may talk with thee. 23 For the command of a law is a lamp and light; and reproof and instruction is the way of life, 24 to keep thee from a married woman; and from the flattering tongue of a strange woman. 25 Let not a lust for beauty overcome thee: be not captivated by thine eyes, nor ensnared by her eyelids. 26 For the price of a harlot is scarce that of a single loaf; but an adulteress hunteth for the precious lives of men. 27 Can any one put fire in his bosom and not burn his clothes? 28 Or can one walk on coals of fire and not burn his feet? 29 So he who goeth in, to a married woman, cannot escape punishment; no, nor any one who toucheth her. 30 It exciteth no wonder, if one be caught stealing; for a hungry man stealeth to satisfy his soul; 31 but if he be caught, he is to pay seven fold; and by giving all that he hath, he will deliver himself. 32 But he, who through want of understanding, committeth adultery, provideth destruction for his soul. 33 He suffereth pangs and dishonour; and his reproach can never be wiped away. 34 For the rage of her husband being full of jealousy, will not spare in the day of vengeance; 35 nor will he abate his enmity for any ransom; nor be appeased by many gifts.

Proverbs 7:1-27

1 My son keep my words and lay up my commandments with thee. My son, honor the Lord and thou shall be strong; but besides him, fear no other. 2 Keep my commandments, that thou mayst live; and my words as the apple of thine eye. 3 Bind them about thy fingers, and write them on the table of thy heart. 4 Implore Wisdom to be thy sister, and make Understanding thine acquaintance: 5 that she may keep thee from a strange and wicked woman, in case she, with alluring words should attack thee. 6 For through a lattice she looketh out of her house into the streets; 7 and if among the simple youths she chanceth to see a young man, void of understanding, 8 walking near a corner in the passages to her house, 9 and talking in the twilight, when the evening is still and duskish: 10 then this woman, who maketh the hearts of young men flutter, meeteth him, in the attire of a harlot. 11 Indeed she is ever on the wing and insatiable, and her feet abide not at home. 12 For sometimes she roveth abroad: and sometimes lieth in wait in the streets, at every corner. 13 Ha! she hath caught him and kissed him, and with an unblushing countenance, said to him: 14 "I have a peace offering; today I am paying my vows: 15 for this reason I came out to meet thee: earnestly longing to see thee. 16 I have found thee. With cords I have stretched my bed, and decked it with tapestry from Egypt. 17 I have perfumed my bed with saffron, and my house with cinnamon: 18 come, and let us take our fill of love till the morning: come and let us solace ourselves with love. 19 For my husband is not at home, he is gone a long journey; 20 he took in his hand a roll of silver, and will return to his house after many days." 21 So with much fawning discourse she led him astray; and with the flattery of her lips inveigled him. 22 And he is gone after her, attracted by her; as an ox is led to slaughter, or as a dog to be chained: or like a deer pierced through the liver with a dart. 23 And he hasteth like a bird to a snare; not knowing that he is running the risk of his life. 24 Now therefore ray son hearken to me; and attend to the words of my mouth. 25 Let not thy heart turn aside to her ways: 26 for she hath wounded and brought down many; and innumerable are they whom she hath slain. 27 Her house is the highway to Hades, leading down to the chambers of death.

1 Corinthians 11:3-10

3 and I wish you to know that the Christ is the head of every man; and that the head of woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man praying or prophesying with his head covered dishonoureth his head; 5 and every woman praying or prophesying with the head uncovered dishonoureth her head; for it is the same as if she were shaven. 6 For if a woman is not veiled, let her be shorn. But if it be shameful for a woman to be shorn or shaved, let her be veiled. 7 For man indeed ought not to have his head covered, he being an image and a glory of God; but woman is a glory of man; 8 for man was not made of woman; but woman of man. 9 Nor was man created for the woman; but woman for the man. 10 The woman, therefore, ought to have a covering on the head, because of the messengers.

1 Timothy 2:11-14

11 Let women learn in quietness with all submission. 12 For I do not allow a woman to teach or to usurp authority over man, but to be in quietness. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived: but the woman being deceived was in transgression,

20 Wisdom uttereth her song at the gates and in the streets speaketh boldly; 21 and on the tops of walls she maketh proclamation; and at the gates of mighty men taketh a seat and at the gates of a city with confidence saith,

Luke 10:38-42

38 And as they were travelling, he came to a certain village, and a woman whose name was Martha, received him into her house. 39 Now she had a sister called Mary, who sat down at the feet of Jesus and heard his discourse. 40 But Martha was cumbered about dispensing amply for the entertainment. So coming in, she said, Master, Carest thou not that my sister hath left me to serve alone? Speak to her therefore that she may assist me. 41 In reply to which, Jesus saith to her, Martha, Martha, thou art anxious and troubling thyself about many things. 42 But there is one thing necessary. As for Mary, she hath chosen that good portion which shall not be taken from her.
