Honoring Biblical Marriage

I have hesitated for a while about posting a list of Bible verses about marriage.

The enemy of my soul has been whispering in my ear telling me that since I have failed previously in a marriage that I had nothing to offer to people who are married or are contemplating marriage.

However, that is not true. If nothing else, because of my failures I can give a unique perspective to everyone concerning marriage because I do know the things I failed in and am honest enough to face those things and hopefully help others avoid the mistakes I have made.

I also truly hope that someday God will give me the favor and allow me to find my helpmate for the rest of my life. Maybe sharing these verses about marriage will plant some seeds in that direction. 🙂

Update 2014: God granted me the favor. 🙂

Bible Verses to Help You Prepare and Strengthen Your Marriage

Gen 2:18-25

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” 19 So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. 20 He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him.

21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs[d] and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.

23 “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone,and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’because she was taken from ‘man.’”

24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

25 Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.

Ecclesiastes 9:9

9 Live happily with the woman you love through all the meaningless days of life that God has given you under the sun. The wife God gives you is your reward for all your earthly toil.

Psalm 127:3

3 Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.

1 Corinthians 7:2-4

2 But because there is so much sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs. 4 The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife.

Romans 7:2

2 For example, when a woman marries, the law binds her to her husband as long as he is alive. But if he dies, the laws of marriage no longer apply to her.

Hebrews 13:4

4 Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.

2 Corinthians 6:14-15

The Temple of the Living God

14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?

Matthew 19:6-10

6 Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.”

7 “Then why did Moses say in the law that a man could give his wife a written notice of divorce and send her away?” they asked.

8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted divorce only as a concession to your hard hearts, but it was not what God had originally intended. 9 And I tell you this, whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery—unless his wife has been unfaithful.”

10 Jesus’ disciples then said to him, “If this is the case, it is better not to marry!”

1 Corinthians 7:8-10

8 So I say to those who aren’t married and to widows—it’s better to stay unmarried, just as I am. 9 But if they can’t control themselves, they should go ahead and marry. It’s better to marry than to burn with lust. 10 But for those who are married, I have a command that comes not from me, but from the Lord. A wife must not leave her husband.
