Bible Verses About Women’s Strength (KJV)

Proverbs 31:25
Photo by 11417994

Women are often seen as the weaker sex. But the Bible shows us that women are just as strong, if not stronger, than men. Take for example, Eve. She was created from Adam’s rib, and yet she was the one who tempted him to eat the forbidden fruit. She showed strength in her convictions, even when faced with temptation.

Similarly, Sarah was another strong woman of the Bible. She was Abraham’s wife, and yet she is the one who helped him fulfill God’s promise of becoming a father. She did this by having a child with Abraham’s servant, Hagar. Even though this was not what she had originally wanted, she showed strength in her willingness to do whatever it took to help her husband.

Ruth was a woman of great strength. She was widowed at a young age, but she did not let that stop her from providing for her family. She worked hard and persevere, even when times were tough. Because of her strength, she was able to provide for her family and build a new life for herself.

Lastly, we see the strength of women in the story of Esther. She was a Jew who became the queen of Persia. When her people were threatened with genocide, she showed great strength by going before the king and pleading for their lives. She risked her own life to save her people, and she is celebrated as a hero to this day.

These are just a few examples of the many strong women we see in the Bible. They show us that women are just as capable as men of being strong and showing conviction. We should all aspire to be like them.
