Bible verses about "loving your husband" | MLV

Romans 1:26-2:1

26 Because of this, God gave them up to passions of dishonor; for even their females exchanged the natural use into what is contrary to anything natural; 27 and the males also likewise, having left the natural use of the female, burned in their lust toward one another, males with males working forth indecency and receiving in themselves the recompense which was essential from their error.
28 And just-as they did not approve to have God in their full knowledge, God gave them up to an unapproved mind, to do those things which are not proper. 29 They have been filled with all: unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, greed, malice; full of: envy, murder, strife, treachery, maliciousness. They are: malicious whisperers, 30 slandering, spiteful to God, insolent, haughty, braggarts, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, covenant-breakers, cold-hearted, implacable and unmerciful. 32 Who, having fully known the ordinance of God, (that those practicing such things are worthy of death), are not only practicing the same things, but also are consenting with those who are practicing the same things.

Romans 2:1-1

1 Hence O man, you are without defense, everyone who judges; for in what you are judging the other, you are condemning yourself; for you who judge are practicing the same things.

Deuteronomy 24:1-4

1 When a man takes a wife and marries her, then it will be, if she finds no favor in his eyes, because he has found some unseemly thing in her, that he will write her a document of divorcement and give it in her hand and send her out of his house.
2 And when she has departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's. 3 And if the latter husband dislikes her and writes her a document of divorcement and gives it in her hand and sends her out of his house, or if the latter husband dies, who took her to be his wife, 4 her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife after she is defiled. For that is abomination before Jehovah and you will not cause the land to sin, which Jehovah your God gives you for an inheritance.

1 Corinthians 13:13

13 But these three are remaining now: faith, hope, love, and the greater of these is love.

Ephesians 5:22-25

22 The wives be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 Because the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is also the head of the congregation of believers, he is the savior of the body. 24 But just-like the congregation is subject to the Christ, so let the wives also be subject to their own husbands in all things.
25 The husbands, love*\'b0 your own wives, just-as the Christ also loved the congregation and gave himself up on her behalf;

Titus 2:4

4 in order that they may train the young women to be lovers of their husbands, to love their children,

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 If I speak with the languages of men and of messengers, but do not have love, I have become like noisy brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have the gift of prophecy and if I know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so-then to remove mountains, but if I do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I handout all my possessed things and if I give my body in order that I would be burned, but if I do not have love, it profits me nothing. 4 Love has patience. It is kind. Love is not jealous. Love does not brag. It is not arrogant. 5 It does not behave improperly. It does not seek its own. It does not irritate. It does not reason evil. 6 It does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices together with the truth. 7 It is forbearing all things, is believing all things, is hoping for all things, is enduring all things. 8 Love never falls short.
But if there are prophesies, they will be done-away; if there are foreign languages, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done-away.
9 But we know partially and we prophesy partially; 10 but whenever the completed thing comes, then what is partially will be done-away. 11 When I was an infant, I was speaking like an infant, I had the mindset like that of an infant, I was reasoning like an infant. Now that I have become a man, I have done-away-with the things of the infant. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. I know now partially, but then I will fully know just-as I was also fully known.
13 But these three are remaining now: faith, hope, love, and the greater of these is love.

1 Corinthians 10:13

13 No temptation has taken you except common human temptations, but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able to undergo, but together with the temptation, he will also make an outlet.

Titus 2:1-15

1 But as for you, speak the things which are suitable to the sound teaching. 2 Teach elderly-men to be temperate, honorable, sensible, sound in the faith, in love, in endurance.
3 Likewise, teach elderly-women to be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers, not having been enslaved to much wine, but teachers of what is good, 4 in order that they may train the young women to be lovers of their husbands, to love their children, 5 and to be sensible, pure, homemakers, and kind, being subject to their own husbands, in order that the word of God may not be blasphemed. 6 Likewise encourage the younger-men to be sensible, 7 providing yourself as an example of good works concerning all things; in the teaching have integrity, honesty, incorruption, 8 sound speech which is not condemnable; in order that the adverse one might be embarrassed, having no evil thing to say concerning us.
9 Encourage bondservants to subject themselves to their own masters and be well pleasing to them in all things, not contradicting them; 10 not pilfering things, but showing all good faith fulness; in order that they may adorn the teaching of God our Savior in all things. 11 For the grace of God has appeared, which is salvation to all men, 12 educating us in order that we should live with self-discipline and righteously and devoutly in this current age, after having denied ungodliness and worldly lusts; 13 waiting for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ; 14 who gave himself on our behalf, in order that he might redeem us away from all lawlessness and might cleanse a treasured people for himself, zealous of good works. 15 Speak and encourage and reprove these things with every commandment. Let no one despise you.

1 John 4:12

12 No one has seen God at anytime; if we love one another, God is abiding in us and his love is completed in us.

Hebrews 13:4

4 Let marriage be honored among all and let the marriage-bed be undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will be judging.

Titus 2:4-5

4 in order that they may train the young women to be lovers of their husbands, to love their children, 5 and to be sensible, pure, homemakers, and kind, being subject to their own husbands, in order that the word of God may not be blasphemed.

Proverbs 31:11-31

11 The heart of her husband trusts in her and he will have no lack of gain. 12 She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax and works willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchant ships: she brings her bread from afar.
15 She also rises while it is yet night and gives food to her household and their task to her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it. She plants a vineyard with the fruit of her hands.
17 She girds her loins with strength and makes her arms strong. 18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out by night.
19 She lays her hands to the distaff and her hands hold the spindle.
20 She stretches out her hand to the poor, yes, she reaches forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household, because all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes for herself carpets of tapestry. Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them and delivers belts to the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom and the law of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the traveling of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her sons rise up and call her fortunate. Her husband also and he praises her.
29 Many daughters have done worthily, but you excel them all. 30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears Jehovah, she will be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands and let her works praise her in the gates.

1 Peter 3:1-22

1 Likewise, wives be subject to your own husbands; in order that, even if some are disobedient to the word, they might be gained without a word through the conduct of their wives; 2 having eye-witnessed your pure conduct in fear; 3 whose adornment, do not let it be the outward adornment of braiding the hair, and of placing on of gold things or of clothing of expensive garments; 4 but let it be the hidden human things of the heart, in the incorruptible clothing of a meek and quiet spirit, which is greatly-valued in God’s sight. 5 For so, the holy women, those also hoping in God, were previously adorning themselves, being subject to their own husbands; 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord; whose children you became, doing good and not fearing any terror.
7 Likewise the husbands, dwell together with your wives according to the knowledge, bestowing honor to the wife, as the weaker vessel, as also being joint heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers may not be hindered.
8 Now to the end, all be like-minded, sympathetic, loving the brethren, affectionate, friendly; 9 not repaying evil in exchange-for evil or reviling in exchange-for reviling, but instead, speaking well of others; knowing that you were called for this, in order that you should inherit a blessing. 10 For he who wills to love life and to see good days, let his tongue cease from speaking evil, and also his lips not to speak treachery. 11 Let him shun evil and let him practice good. Let him seek peace and let him pursue it, 12 because the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous and his ears are toward their supplication. But the face of the Lord is against those who are practicing evil.
13 And who is he who will be mistreating you, if you become imitators of the good one? 14 But even if you should suffer because of righteousness, you are fortunate. But do not fear because of their fear, nor should you be disturbed; 15 but make the Lord God holy in your hearts, and be ready habitually with a defense to everyone who is asking you for a reason concerning the hope which is in you, with meekness and fear; 16 having a good conscience; in order that, in what they are speaking against you as evildoers, they may be ashamed who are railing at your good conduct in Christ. 17 For it is better to suffer doing good than for doing evil, (if the will of God wills it). 18 Because Christ also suffered once for all on behalf of our sins, the righteous on behalf of the unrighteous, in order that he might lead you to God; having indeed been slain in the flesh, but was given-life in the Spirit; 19 in which, he also traveled and preached to the spirits in prison, 20 when they previously were disobedient, when the patience of God was waiting in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water; 21 which is our counterpart, immersion, saves us also now, not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the demand of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ; 22 who is at the right hand of God, having traveled into heaven; with messengers and authorities and powers having been made subject to him.

Ephesians 5:22-24

22 The wives be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 Because the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is also the head of the congregation of believers, he is the savior of the body. 24 But just-like the congregation is subject to the Christ, so let the wives also be subject to their own husbands in all things.

1 Peter 4:8

8 But before all things, having the intense love for yourselves, because love will hide a multitude of sins.

Genesis 2:24

24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and will cling to his wife and the two will be one flesh.

1 Corinthians 7:1-40

1 Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: it is good for a man not to touch a woman sexually. \ulnone\nosupersub 2 But, because of fornications, let each man have his own wife and let each woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband give to the wife her owed benevolence and likewise also the wife give to the husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband, and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife. 5 Do not deprive one another, except from agreement for some time, in order that you may occupy yourselves to fasting and to prayer, and you may come to the same again, in order that the Adversary may not tempt you because of your shortage of self-control. 6 But I am saying this according to concession, not according to commandment. 7 For I wish that all men were even as I myself am. But each one has his own gift from God, indeed the one is so and the one is thus.
8 But I am saying to the unmarried and to the widows, it is good for them if they remain even as I am. 9 But if they do not exercise self-control, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to be on fire. 10 But I command to those who have married, (not I, but the Lord): the wife is not to be separated from her husband, 11 (but even if she is separated, let her remain unmarried, or let her be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband is not to leave his wife.
12 But to the rest I say, (not the Lord); if some brother has an unbelieving wife and she consents to dwell with him, let him not leave her. 13 And if a wife who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been made holy by the wife and the unbelieving wife has been made holy by the husband. Consequently, your children were unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbelieving spouse separates, let the one separate; the brother or the sister has not been enslaved in such things. Now God has called us in peace. 16 For what do you know O wife, if you will be saving your husband? Or what do you know O husband, if you will be saving your wife?
17 Except as God has divided to each one, as the Lord has called each, so let him walk. And so I myself am commanding in all the congregations. 18 Was anyone called being circumcised? Let him not be uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? Let him not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. 20 Let each one remain in that calling in which he was called. 21 Were you called being a bondservant? Let it not be a care to you, but if you are also able to become free; use it rather. 22 For he who was called in the Lord, having been a bondservant, is the Lord’s freedman; likewise, the free one who was called, is Christ’s bondservant. 23 You were bought with a price; do not become bondservants of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with God in this thing in which he was called.
25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment from the Lord, but I am giving my viewpoint, as one who has been shown-mercy by the Lord to be faithful. 26 Therefore I suppose this to be good, because of the present calamity; that it is good for a man to be thus. 27 Have you been bound to a wife? Do not seek divorce. Have you been loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 But even if you marry, you have not sinned, and if the virgin marries, she has not sinned. But such will have affliction in the flesh, and I would spare you.
29 But I am saying this, brethren, the time is limited, furthermore it is that both those who have wives may be as though they had none; 30 and those who weep, as though not weeping, and those who rejoice, as though not rejoicing, and those who buy, as though not having; 31 and those who use this world, as though not making full use of it; for the fashion of this world is passing away.
32 But I wish for you to be carefree. He who is unmarried is anxious for the things of the Lord, how he will be pleasing the Lord; 33 but he who is married is anxious for the things of the world, how he may please the wife. 34 He has been divided. The unmarried woman, (also the virgin), is anxious for the things is of the Lord, in order that she may be holy both in body and in spirit, but she who is married is anxious for the things of the world, how she will be pleasing the husband. 35 Now, I say this thing is advantageous for yourselves, not in order that I may cast a noose upon you, but a non-distraction toward the decent, and devoted in the Lord.
36 But if anyone supposes he is behaving improperly over his virgin, if she is beyond her prime and thus it ought to happen, let her do what she wills; she is not sinning; let them marry.
37 But he who stands, grounded in his heart, not having necessity, but has the authority concerning his own will, and he has decided this in his own heart to keep his own virgin, he does well. 38 So-then both he who betroths does well, and he who does not betroth is doing better.
39 A wife has been bound by law inasmuch time as the husband is living, but if the husband has fallen-asleep, she is free to be married to whom she wills, but only in the Lord. 40 But she is fortunate if she remains so, according to my viewpoint, and I think that I also have the Spirit of God.
