A Woman’s Roles

This entry is part 2 of 4 in the series Husband's Owners Manual for Their Wife

In order for husbands to know their wives better, they need to know both about women in general and their woman (you) in particular.  You see, ladies, sometimes your very patterns of behavior totally confuse a man, especially when he thinks he has you figured out.

Like, take an average trip to Wal*Mart.  I was sent to go pick up the yogurt for the week.  Knowing that Virtuous Blonde has mentioned in the past that she likes Key Lime Pie Yogurt, I pick up a bunch– thinking that I’ve gotten her favorite kind to eat.

After getting home and eating them for a few days, I begin to wonder why she was eating the yogurt I picked out for myself since there are still more Key Lime Pie Yogurts in the refrigerator.  It turns out that she really doesn’t like those anymore– but unlike my computer that notifies me that an update is available, she didn’t tell me.

Back to roles, since it’s important for Husbands and Wives to know their Biblical roles, Lou Priolo has a chart, which I will condense here:

Woman’s Role / ResponsibilityScripture Reference
To be a suitable helperGenesis 2:18
To be submissive to her husbandEphesians 5:22
To glorify her husband1 Corinthians 11:7-9
To reverence her husbandEphesians 5:33
To adorn herself with a meek and quiet spirit1 Peter 3:3-4
To be pure and respectful in her conduct1 Peter 3:2
To be wise and kind in word (and heart)Proverbs 31:26
An Older Woman is:


  • To be reverent in behavior
  • To not be enslaved to wine
  • To not be a malicious gossip
  • To teach what is good
  • To teach younger women
Titus 2:3-4
A younger woman is:


  • To be loving to her husband and children
  • To be discreet
  • To be pure
  • To be a keeper of the home
  • To be kind
  • To be subject to her husband
Titus 2:5

He then goes on to list a woman’s makeup:

Characterological Make-upScripture Reference
She was made out of man1 Corinthians 11:8
She was made for man1 Corinthians 11:9
She was made after man1 Timothy 2:13
She has a penchant to control her husbandGenesis 3:16
She is more easily deceived1 Timothy 2:14
She is to view herself as a bodily member and her husband as her headEphesians 5:23

Whew, there’s a lot in the Scripture about you ladies!
