The Bible Could Advocate For Sexism

A general compilation of passages from the Bible that basically mean the Lord is sexist.

I do not attack religion in any way, only doing a simple organization of the passages that are questionable. What opinion you have when you leave after reading these is entirely up to you.

Here are the passages, and I organized them in Alphabetical order (based on the part it’s from)

1 CORINTHIANS 14:34-35

34 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.

35 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.

1 CORINTHIANS 11:3

But I would have you know, that the head of every man is

Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head

of Christ is God.

1 CORINTHIANS 11:13-15

13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto

God uncovered?

14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have

long hair, it is a shame unto him?

15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for

her hair is given her for a covering.

COLOSSIANS 3:18

18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it

is fit in the Lord.

DEUTERONOMY 20:13-16

13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine

hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of

the sword:

14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all

that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take

unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies,

which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

15 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far

off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations.

16 But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy

God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive

nothing that breatheth

DEUTERONOMY 21:10-13

10 ¶ 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,

11 And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and

hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy

wife;

12 Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house; and she

shall shave her head, and pare her nails;

13 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.

DEUTERONOMY 22:23-27

23 ¶ If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an

husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that

city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the

damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the

man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so

thou shalt put away evil from among you.

25 ¶ But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and

the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that

lay with her shall die:

26 But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the

damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth

against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this

matter:

27 For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel

cried, and there was none to save her.

ECCLESIASTES 7:26

26 And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose

heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso

pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be

taken by her.

EPHESIANS 5:22-24

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as

unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is

the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the

wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

LEVITICUS 12:1-5

AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2 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.

3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be

circumcised.

4 And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying

three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor

come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be

fulfilled.

5 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.

LEVITICUS 27:1-7

AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,

When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall

be for the LORD by thy estimation.

3 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, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

4 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty

shekels.

5 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.

6 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.

7 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.

LEVITICUS 19:20

20 ¶ 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.

NUMBERS 30:12

12 But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the

day he heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her

lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her

soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and

the LORD shall forgive her.

1 TIMOTHY 2:9

9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in

modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with

broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

1 TIMOTHY 2:11-14

11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority

over the man, but to be in silence.

13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being

deceived was in the transgression.

1 TIMOTHY 5:5-6

5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in

God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and

day.

6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.
