HiGh DiGNity of wOmEn in AbraHamic religions: Part 1
1 Corinthians 11:3-10:
But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head.
But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head — it is the same as having her head shaved.
If a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.
A man ought not cover his head, since he is in the image and the glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.
For man did not come from woman, but woman from man.
Neither was man created for women, but women for man.
For this reason, a woman ought to have a sign of authority on her head, because of the angels.
1 Corinthians 11:13-16:
Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
Doesn’t nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair it is a disgrace to him, but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory?
For long hair is given to her as a covering.
If anyone is inclined to dispute this, we have no other practice, nor do the churches of God.
1 Corinthians 14:34-35:
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.
And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife.
Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails.
And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife.
And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will...
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do.
If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes.
Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.
Genesis 26:34, Genesis 29:29:
And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite.
Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.
And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants...
And Esau took his wives...
Leviticus 12:2 and Leviticus 12:5:
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean...
But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.
And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free.
And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver...
And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.
And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.
And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
1 Timothy 2:12:
I do not permit a woman to teach or have authority over a man; she must be quiet.
Men and women aint equal just as all humans are not equal. but i support equality (equal status)

No abrahamic religions are right...change my mind

- The Christ was indeed a misogynist
“Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.” —Genesis 3:16
- Oh yeah, he is 100 percent sexiest and this is the example of equality lmao-
You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters. (Leviticus 26:29)
My young women and my young men have fallen by the sword; in the day of your anger you have killed them, slaughtering without mercy. (Lamentations 2:21)
- A shameful religion that shows both man and woman were naked. How it would affect christian children ?
Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves. (Genesis 3:7)
- He cursed eve with labor pain-
I will greatly increase your pangs in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you. (Genesis 3:16)
- Women are inferior than that of men and the bible says it is their fault. Women are second-class. Because of Eve’s insubordination, she was forced to become dependent on a man.
Let a woman learn in silence with full submission. I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she is to keep silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. (1 Timothy 2:11–14)
- The man was created first and then woman. Why did not both at same time ? Why he did that inequality ?
Genesis 2:20–23 “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” KJV (Notice the biological reversal: woman comes out of man instead of the other way around.)
- Women are rarely mentioned as ancestors but man reproduce
Genesis 5:1–32 “This is the written account of Adam’s family line … “[who] … had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth … [who] … became the father of Enosh … [who] … became the father of Kenan … [who] … became the father of Mahalalel … [who] … became the father of Jared … [who] … became the father of Enoch … [who] … became the father of Methuselah … [who] … became the father of Lamech … [who] … had a son. He named him Noah … [who] … became the father of Shem, Ham and Japheth.” NIV
- The national poll counted only males
Numbers 1:1–2 “The Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying, ‘Take a census of all the congregation of the people of Israel, by families, by fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, every male, head by head.’” RSV
- Why don’t women count ?
Numbers 3:15, 28 “‘Number the sons of Levi, by fathers’ houses and by families; every male from a month old and upward you shall number.’ … According to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, there were eight thousand six hundred, attending to the duties of the sanctuary.” RSV
- God is covenant with only men wow
Genesis 17:9–14 “And God said to Abraham, ‘As for you, you shall keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations. This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your descendants after you: Every male among you shall be circumcised. … So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant. Any uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.’” RSV
- Only man
Exodus 23:17 “Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord God.” RSV (Repeated in Exodus 34:23.)
Females stay outside. Why though ?
Exodus 38:8 “And he made the laver of bronze and its base of bronze, from the mirrors of the ministering women who ministered at the door of the tent of meeting.” RSV
Only males are allowed to be priests
Leviticus 6:14–18 “These are the regulations for the grain offering: Aaron’s sons are to bring it before the Lord, in front of the altar. … Aaron and his sons shall eat the rest of it, but it is to be eaten without yeast in the sanctuary area; they are to eat it in the courtyard of the tent of meeting. … Any male descendant of Aaron may eat it. For all generations to come it is his perpetual share of the food offerings presented to the Lord. Whatever touches them will become holy.” NIV
If a priest’s daughter sleeps around, burn her
Leviticus 21:9 “And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by playing the harlot, profanes her father; she shall be burned with fire.” RSV (What about the sons who sleep around?)
God had sons, he had never daughters
Genesis 6:1–2 “When men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair; and they took to wife such of them as they chose.” RSV
- In Noah’s Ark, female animals are mates or property of males
Genesis 7:2 “Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and his mate; and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate.” RSV
- Wives are considered to be property of the males in the 10 commandments
Exodus 20:17 “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.” KJV (The Commandments are addressed to males. This is repeated in Deuteronomy 5:21.)
Wives are swappable property. Wow swingers !
Jeremiah 8:9–10 “Since they have rejected the word of the Lord, what kind of wisdom do they have? Therefore I will give their wives to other men and their fields to new owners.” NIV
A daughter is property of the father, to be sold as a slave or given as a wife
Exodus 21:7–9 “When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shall not go out as the male slaves do. If she does not please her master, who has designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed; he shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, since he has dealt faithlessly with her. If he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her as with a daughter.” RSV (This is in the chapter immediately after the Ten Commandments.)
Female as property. If a man rapes a single woman, he has to pay her father and marry her
Deuteronomy 22:28–29 “If a man meets a virgin who is not betrothed, and seizes her and lies with her, and they are found, then the man who lay with her shall give to the father of the young woman fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he has violated her; he may not put her away all his days.” RSV (You broke it, you buy it.)
A daughter/niece is given as a reward for violence
Judges 1:12–13 “And Caleb said, ‘He who attacks Kir’iath-se’pher and takes it, I will give him Achsah my daughter as wife.’ And Oth’ni-el the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother, took it; and he gave him Achsah his daughter as wife.” RSV
A woman is acquired in a real estate transaction
Ruth 4:5 “Then Bo’az said, ‘The day you buy the field from the hand of Na’omi, you are also buying Ruth the Moabitess, the widow of the dead, in order to restore the name of the dead to his inheritance.’” RSV
David purchased his wife with 200 foreskins
1 Samuel 18:27 “David arose and went, along with his men, and killed two hundred of the Philistines; and David brought their foreskins, which were given in full number to the king, that he might become the king’s son-in-law. And Saul gave him his daughter Michal for a wife.” RSV
Please with his virgin daughters
Genesis 19:6–8 “Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, and said, ‘I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly. Behold, I have two daughters who have not known man; let me bring them out to you, and do to them as you please; only do nothing to these men, for they have come under the shelter of my roof.’” RSV (Although Lot spoke these words, he was favored by God. There is no biblical condemnation of this horrible act, even from God’s angels—both male—who were watching.)
Kill female witches (not male)
Exodus 22:18 “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.” KJV (The NRSV has “female sorcerers.” This one verse has resulted in the deaths of many thousands of women through history.)
The God wants your son but not your daughter
Exodus 22:29–31 “You shall not delay to offer from the fullness of your harvest and from the outflow of your presses. The firstborn of your sons you shall give to me. You shall do likewise with your oxen and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with its dam; on the eighth day you shall give it to me. You shall be men consecrated to me.” RSV
- Rulers sacrifice male animals but commoners sacrifice female animals
… Leviticus 4:22–23 “When a ruler sins, doing unwittingly any one of all the things which the Lord his God has commanded not to be done, and is guilty, if the sin which he has committed is made known to him, he shall bring as his offering a goat, a male without blemish.” RSV
Leviticus 4:27–28 “If any one of the common people sins unwittingly in doing any one of the things which the Lord has commanded not to be done, and is guilty, when the sin which he has committed is made known to him he shall bring for his offering a goat, a female without blemish, for his sin which he has committed.” RSV
A mother is doubly unclean, if she has a daughter. Why ain’t she unclean if she has a son ?
Leviticus 12:1–5 “The Lord said to Moses, ‘Say to the people of Israel, If a woman conceives, and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as at the time of her menstruation, she shall be unclean. And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. Then she shall continue for thirty-three days in the blood of her purifying; she shall not touch any hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying are completed. But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her menstruation; and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying for sixty-six days.’” RSV
Females have lower monetary value
Leviticus 27:1–7 “The Lord said to Moses, ‘Say to the people of Israel, When a man makes a special vow of persons to the Lord at your valuation, then your valuation of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary. If the person is a female, your valuation shall be thirty shekels. If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, your valuation shall be for a male twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels. If the person is from a month old up to five years old, your valuation shall be for a male five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver. And if the person is sixty years old and upward, then your valuation for a male shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels.’” RSV (Notice that the adult female/male ratio was 3/5, the same as the early American Constitutional “Three-Fifths Compromise” over the value of slaves.)
Menstruation is an infirmity requiring a sin offering
Leviticus 15:19, 29–30 “When a woman has a discharge of blood which is her regular discharge from her body, she shall be in her impurity for seven days, and whoever touches her shall be unclean until the evening. … And on the eighth day she shall take two turtledoves or two young pigeons, and bring them to the priest, to the door of the tent of meeting. And the priest shall offer one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make atonement for her before the Lord for her unclean discharge.” RSV
Wives suspected of infidelity must endure a cruel test
Numbers 5:15–31 “Then the man shall bring his wife to the priest, and bring the offering required of her … a cereal offering of remembrance, bringing iniquity to remembrance. And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the Lord; and the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it into the water. And the priest shall set the woman before the Lord, and unbind the hair of the woman’s head. … And when he has made her drink the water, then, if she has defiled herself and has acted unfaithfully against her husband, the water that brings the curse shall enter into her and cause bitter pain, and her body shall swell, and her thigh shall fall away, and the woman shall become an execration among her people. But if the woman has not defiled herself and is clean, then she shall be free and shall conceive children. This is the law in cases of jealousy. The man shall be free from iniquity, but the woman shall bear her iniquity.” RSV (Philandering husbands endure no such test.)
Inheritance goes through male relatives, unless a daughter is the only survivor but the daughter can only pass her inheritance on to males
Numbers 36:8–12 [Moses speaking] “‘And every daughter who possesses an inheritance in any tribe of the people of Israel shall be wife to one of the family of the tribe of her father, so that every one of the people of Israel may possess the inheritance of his fathers. So no inheritance shall be transferred from one tribe to another; for each of the tribes of the people of Israel shall cleave to its own inheritance.’ The daughters of Zelo’phehad did as the Lord commanded Moses; for Mahlah, Tirzah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Noah, the daughters of Zelo’phehad, were married to sons of their father’s brothers. They were married into the families of the sons of Manas’seh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained in the tribe of the family of their father.” RSV
God allows polygamy, for men only. Why not for women ?
Genesis 4:19 “And Lamech took two wives; the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.” RSV
Genesis 26:34 “When Esau was forty years old, he took to wife Judith the daughter of Be-e’ri the Hittite, and Bas’emath the daughter of Elon the Hittite.” RSV
Genesis 28:9 “Esau went to Ish’mael and took to wife, besides the wives he had, Ma’halath the daughter of Ish’mael Abraham’s son, the sister of Neba’ioth.” RSV
Gideon had many wives and a mistress
Judges 8:30–31 “Now Gideon had seventy sons, his own offspring, for he had many wives. And his concubine who was in Shechem also bore him a son, and he called his name Abim’elech.” RSV (Remember this next time you see a “family values” Gideon Bible in your hotel room.)
God murdered a husband in order to increase David’s harem but he needed more and then David’s wives were taken and raped outdoors, to punish
1 Samuel 25:2–44 “A certain man in Maon, who had property there at Carmel, was very wealthy. … His name was Nabal and his wife’s name was Abigail. She was an intelligent and beautiful woman, but her husband was surly and mean in his dealings—he was a Calebite. … David said to his men, ‘Each of you strap on your sword!’ … About ten days later, the Lord struck Nabal and he died. … Then David sent word to Abigail, asking her to become his wife. … Abigail quickly got on a donkey and, attended by her five female servants, went with David’s messengers and became his wife. David had also married Ahinoam of Jezreel, and they both were his wives. But Saul had given his daughter Michal, David’s wife, to Paltiel son of Laish, who was from Gallim.” NIV
2 Samuel 5:13 “After he left Hebron, David took more concubines and wives in Jerusalem, and more sons and daughters were born to him.” NIV
2 Samuel 12:11 “This is what the Lord says: ‘Out of your own household I am going to bring calamity on you. Before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will sleep with your wives in broad daylight.’” NIV
- And David’s son raped his mistresses
2 Samuel 16:21–22 “Ahithophel answered, ‘Sleep with your father’s concubines whom he left to take care of the palace. Then all Israel will hear that you have made yourself obnoxious to your father, and the hands of everyone with you will be more resolute.’ So they pitched a tent for Absalom on the roof, and he slept with his father’s concubines in the sight of all Israel.” NIV
Then David punished the mistresses by locking them up forever
2 Samuel 20:3 “And David came to his house at Jerusalem; and the king took the ten concubines whom he had left to care for the house, and put them in a house under guard, and provided for them, but did not go in to them. So they were shut up until the day of their death, living as if in widowhood.” RSV
Men can make vows, but a woman’s vow can be annulled by her father or husband
Numbers 30:1–8, 16 “This is what the Lord commands: When a man makes a vow to the Lord or takes an oath to obligate himself by a pledge, he must not break his word but must do everything he said. When a young woman still living in her father’s household makes a vow to the Lord or obligates herself by a pledge and … her father forbids her when he hears about it, none of her vows or the pledges by which she obligated herself will stand; the Lord will release her because her father has forbidden her. If she marries after she makes a vow or after her lips utter a rash promise by which she obligates herself and … her husband forbids her when he hears about it, he nullifies the vow that obligates her. … These are the regulations the Lord gave Moses concerning relationships between a man and his wife, and between a father and his young daughter still living at home.” NIV
Your firstborn son is favored in the will, even if he is from a hated wife. Why doesn’t this rule imply to firstborn daughter ?
Deuteronomy 21:15–17 “If a man has two wives, the one loved and the other disliked, and they have borne him children, both the loved and the disliked, and if the firstborn son is hers that is disliked, then on the day when he assigns his possessions as an inheritance to his sons, he may not treat the son of the loved as the firstborn in preference to the son of the disliked, who is the firstborn, but he shall acknowledge the firstborn, the son of the disliked, by giving him a double portion of all that he has, for he is the first issue of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.” RSV
A woman who is not a virgin on her wedding night shall be stoned to death.
Deuteronomy 22:20–21 “But if the thing is true, that the tokens of virginity were not found in the young woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has wrought folly in Israel by playing the harlot in her father’s house; so you shall purge the evil from the midst of you.” RSV (Damaged property must be discarded.) (In our eal life there are many girls who break their virginity before marriage so they all should be killed)
A man can simply divorce his wife if he doesn’t like her …
Deuteronomy 24:1 “When a man takes a wife and marries her, if then she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some indecency in her, and he writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house …” RSV
And how about the women ? Lets see
But they can’t be remarried. She is defiled and abhorrent Deuteronomy
24:1–4 “… she departs out of his house, and if she goes and becomes another man’s wife, and the latter husband dislikes her and writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter husband dies, who took her to be his wife, then her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after she has been defiled; for that is an abomination before the Lord, and you shall not bring guilt upon the land which the Lord your God gives you for an inheritance.” RSV
- A woman has to marry her dead husband’s brother. Note- Here he has not said only her husband’s brother
Deuteronomy 25:5–6 “If brothers dwell together, and one of them dies and has no son, the wife of the dead shall not be married outside the family to a stranger; her husband’s brother shall go in to her, and take her as his wife, and perform the duty of a husband’s brother to her. And the first son whom she bears shall succeed to the name of his brother who is dead, that his name may not be blotted out of Israel.” RSV (This is all about patriarchy and inheritance, not love or family values.)
But God killed a man who did not impregnate his brother’s wife
Genesis 38:8–10 “Then Judah said to Onan, ‘Go in to your brother’s wife, and perform the duty of a brother-in-law to her, and raise up offspring for your brother.’ But Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother’s wife he spilled the semen on the ground, lest he should give offspring to his brother. And what he did was displeasing in the sight of the Lord, and he slew him also.” RSV (This is the origin of the word “onanism.”)
- Wow he likes pure virgin girls
Virgins were considered war booty-
Numbers 31:17–18 “Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man by lying with him. But all the young girls who have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.” RSV
Virgins were last in the list of war booty
Numbers 31:25–35 “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast. … And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the Lord commanded Moses. And the booty, being the rest of the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep, And threescore and twelve thousand beeves, And threescore and one thousand asses, And thirty and two thousand persons in all, of women that had not known man by lying with him.” KJV
Take one or two girls as war booty Judges 5:30 “Have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two?” KJV (This is part of a hymn of praise to God.)
You can have sex with a captured slave (whom you orphaned), but if the sex is bad, you can’t sell her
Deuteronomy 21:10–14 “When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the Lord thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive, And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife; Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails; And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife. And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her at all for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of her, because thou hast humbled her.” KJV (Used sex slaves are worthless.)
Cut off a woman’s hand if she touches the penis of her husband’s enemy.
Deuteronomy 25:11–12 “If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity.” NIV
Sex with a woman is unholy.
1 Samuel 21:4–5 “And the priest answered David, and said, There is no common bread under mine hand, but there is hallowed bread; if the young men have kept themselves at least from women. And David answered the priest, and said unto him, Of a truth women have been kept from us about these three days, since I came out, and the vessels of the young men are holy, and the bread is in a manner common, yea, though it were sanctified this day in the vessel.” KJV
Woman is intrinsically unclean Job
14:1–4 [Job speaks] “Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. And doth thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee? Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.” KJV Job 15:14
[Eliphaz speaks] “What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?” KJV Job 25:4
[Bildad speaks] “How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?” KJV (Perhaps these verses can’t be attributed directly to God. However, they were spoken as if they were the truth, in a book supposedly inspired by God.)
A woman who seduces a male is considered evil
Proverbs 7:27 “Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.” KJV (See Proverbs 7:6–26 for the whole story.)
Rape as punishment for disobedience. He is the endorser of rapes
Jeremiah 13:22, 26 “And if you ask yourself, ‘Why have these things happened to me?’ it is because of your many sins that your skirts are pulled up and you have been violated. … I myself will lift your skirts above your face, and your privates will be exposed.” CJB
Haughty women will be sexually assaulted by the Lord
Isaiah 3:16–17 “Moreover Adonai [Lord] says: ‘Because Tziyon’s [Zion] women are so proud, walking with their heads in the air and throwing seductive glances, moving with mincing steps and jingling their anklets— Adonai will strike the crown of the heads of Tziyon’s women with sores, and Adonai will expose their private parts.’” CJB
Woman is compared to a pig’s snout Proverbs
11:22 “As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.” KJV (What about a handsome man without discretion?)

Oholah engaged in prostitution while she was still mine. … Therefore I delivered her into the hands of her lovers, the Assyrians, for whom she lusted.

So I will put an end to lewdness in the land, that all women may take warning and not imitate you. … Then you will know that I am the Sovereign Lord.” NIV
Now change my mind. I will quote your verses. Did you even check what did you write ?
You proved my point. In the end of Genesis it was written "he shall rule over you". Aka men are supreme over women
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
More details of this verse can be found in ephesians 5:22. In the end, it was written "submit yourselves unto your own husbands as unto the lord."
Submit yourselves unto your own husbands. Could you interpret what submit stands for ? It is one of the controversial verses.
