In this article, I will highlight 17 Bible Verses about value of a woman that will help you know how important women are to society and also point out some biblical women who impacted the Bible.

Bible Verses About The Value Of A Woman
These 17 Bible verses will carefully outline the value and worth of a woman different from what we might have been thinking and how to acquire these values.
Proverbs 18:22 – A wife is a favorable thing
He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.
Proverbs 18:22 (ESV)
This verse tells us how vital and relevant a woman is to man and the world at large and how God is so interested in a man finding a wife.
We are to place much value on women for the position of being a helper to the man. According to Genesis 2:18, “The LORD God said, “It is not suitable for the man to be alone, and I will make a helper suitable for him blessing that is attached when a man finds a woman.
Proverbs 31:10 – An excellent wife is expendable
An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
Women are endowed with different attributes which make them unique. They are beautiful creatures created by God to help and assist any in the situation; they’re designed to make the world around them beautiful and cheerful.
Proverbs 31:25 – A woman is strength.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
Before help is rendered, there’s an amount of strength on the inside.
Women aren’t meant to be underrated; when God created man and saw it wasn’t good for man to be alone, He created the woman (eve) to be a helper to him, to be his consoler in times of trials.
1 Peter 3:3-4 – A woman must be beautiful inside-out
“Do not let your adorning be external — the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear — but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”
1 Peter 3:3-4(ESV)
Here Peter instructed and warned women, especially wives, that in other for their value to be evaluated, they are not meant to use artificial things to make themselves beautiful.
Via these verses, we are to understand that the value of women isn’t seen in the unnatural look but in what is deposited in her(her inside). And this is a beauty that won’t fade with age.
Genesis 3:20 – A woman is the mother of all living things
The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
Genesis 3:20 (ESV)
In this passage, this is where we also see the importance and the need to value a woman. Adam gives a simple illustration of why he named his wife eve.
Being a mother of all living things shows that it is not until this moment that the woman created from Adam’s rib receives her name.
Why Scripture chooses this particular moment to mention her name is not entirely clear, but this tells us that out of eve birth out living things.
Proverbs 19:14 – A woman must be prudent
House and wealth are inherited from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the Lord.
Proverbs 19:14 (ESV)
This particular verse involves choosing a wife. It is not easy when it comes to the time men need to settle with their spouses.
According to this passage, a good woman doesn’t come by easily; a good woman comes from God. So as a man, when having the opportunity to have a good woman who comes from God, we have to love and appreciate them.
Proverbs 31:10-11 – A man lacks nothing when he has a good woman
An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
Proverbs 19:14 (ESV)
This verse is directed to married women who have been faithful and friendly to their husbands; this is an encouraging verse that you shouldn’t at any time listen to side talks that will bring doubt to your husband.
Instead, you should focus on still being that excellent woman who is more precious than gold to your husband.
Women should understand that trust is hard to find; to maintain that valuable lifestyle and trust from their husbands, they must not compromise their work for others.
Proverbs 3:15 – A woman of value is incomparable
She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.
Nothing in this world can be compared or equal to what a woman has to offer; we are so relevant that Adam called them a source of living.
This can be general; women seen as the source of living are embedded with the fear of God, which makes them abstain from several worldly activities. So as women who want to be valued, we must make ourselves worthy of it by focusing on God.
1 Timothy 3:11 – A woman of value is well mannered
“Their wives likewise must be dignified, not slanderers, but sober-minded, faithful in all things.”
1 Timothy 3:11(ESV)
There are qualities a woman needs to acquire to be valued; according to this passage, dignity is one of the essential things required not just for the woman but for both men and women.
This verse also talks about a wife not being a slanderer; as a wife or. a woman, we should always control our tongue or the way we speak about others which will quickly result in seeing the person as a wrong person; this attribute can disvalue a woman.
As a woman who wants to be valued in all ramifications, we must learn to be sober-minded and always believe in all things, especially Putting our belief and faith in God.
Luke 1:45 – Blessed is the woman who believes in the word of the Lord
“And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”

We were created to be helpers to them, not discouraged. In other for our values to be maintained, we activate the culture of believing in the promises of God and always use that to put in use in our families.
