The Deficiency of Woman's Mind In Bible
Below are some verses from Old and New Testament
Woman knows nothing and she has a deficient mind with no shame
"A woman deficient in mind is alluring and she knows no shame." Proverbs 9:13 (Aramaic Bible in Plain English ©2010)
Other translations include
GOD'S WORD Translation (©1995)
"The woman Stupidity is loud, gullible, and ignorant."
The Proverbs 5:6 states woman as not being able to give way of life.
"She gives no thought to the way of life; her paths are crooked, but she knows it not." (NIV)
Ecclesiastes 7:26 states
" I find more bitter than death the woman who is a snare, whose heart is a trap and whose hands are chains. The man who pleases God will escape her, but the sinner she will ensnare."
Here is a verse from the New Testament talking about husbands and wives and the way they should treat each other...
1 Peter 3:7
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker (asthenes) partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
The word asthenes means...
1) weak, infirm, feeble
It usually refers to weakness in a physical sense. However, it could also refer to weakness in a mental sense as well
1 Corinthians 8:7,10
"But not everyone knows this. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat such food they think of it as having been sacrificed to an idol, and since their conscience is weak (asthenes), it is defiled. For if anyone with a weak (asthenes) conscience sees you who have this knowledge eating in an idol's temple, won't he be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols?"
So does this mean that the wife is not only weaker physically but mentally as well? Well a well known commentator sure did think so...
"and here "the weaker"; being so for the most part, both as to strength of body, and endowments of mind;" (John Gills Exposition to the Bible, Commentary on 1 Peter 3:7)
The best example for us is Eve, she was deficient in mind and religion (believing in God) and was lead astray by Satan? Why Adam wasn't? Moreover, if we read Ecclesiastes 7:26 and Proverbs 5:6 we will know that why Adam fell in sin. It was just becuase of woman.!!
