Here are the 40 best Bible scriptures on husbands.
Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
1 Peter 3:7
Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
1 Timothy 5:8
But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
1 Corinthians 11:3
But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
1 Corinthians 7:14
For the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy because of her husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.
1 Corinthians 7:16
For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?
1 Corinthians 7:2
But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
1 Corinthians 7:3
The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.
1 Corinthians 7:33
But the married man is anxious about worldly things, how to please his wife.
1 Corinthians 7:4
For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.
1 Corinthians 7:5
Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
1 Peter 3:8
Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
1 Peter 4:8
Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.
1 Thessalonians 4:4
That each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
When a man is newly married, he shall not go out with the army or be liable for any other public duty. He shall be free at home one year to be happy with his wife whom he has taken.
Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior.
For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church.
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”
However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
To the woman he said, “I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
“But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
“But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
House and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.
For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage.
And so train the young women to love their husbands and children.
