WOMEN AS MOTHERS “LIGHT OF THE FAMILY”

WOMEN AS MOTHERS “LIGHT OF THE FAMILY”

Holy Land Man states that the Bible gave us plenty of data about marriage and part of being a wife. During those times, the primary role of women in Israelite society was to have children, because it is a great disgrace for a woman to be childless:

Part 5/8 How And Why GOD Created The Woman?

Note that all general claims and observations by Holy Land Man refer to the vast majority of 70-90% and never to the 100% and so the assertion that “women are…” never refers to 100% but to 70-90%.

Holy Land Man states that the Bible gave us plenty of data about marriage and part of being a wife. During those times, the primary role of women in Israelite society was to have children, because it is a great disgrace for a woman to be childless:

‘But Abram said, Sovereign Lord, what can you give me since I remain childless with her current wife: Sarah and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of Damascus?” (Genesis 15:2)

In the original Hebrew Bible, the worth of a young unmarried woman was attached to her beauty and to her virginity, and this was tied to her future role as a mother. Virginity was essential in the perspective of young brides, that once a woman is married, her beauty was still prized but so was her fertility.

Beautiful Women found in the Bible

In the Hebrew Bible, it conveys the idea that a woman is admirable, often described as beautiful:

  • The daughters of humans 

“the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.” (Genesis 6:2)

  • Sarah 

“It came about when he [came near to Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, See now, I know that you are a beautiful woman; It came about when Abram came into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful.” (Genesis 12:11,14) 

  • Rebekah 

The woman was very beautiful, a virgin; no man had ever slept with her. She went down to the spring, filled her jar and came up again.” (Genesis 24:16)

  • Rachel 

“Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful.” (Genesis 29:17)

  • Bathsheba 

“One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful” (2 Samuel 11:2)

  • Tamar 

“In the course of time, Amnon son of David fell in love with Tamar, the beautiful sister of Absalom son of David. Three sons and a daughter were born to Absalom. His daughter’s name was Tamar, and she became a beautiful woman.” (2 Samuel 13:1; 14:27)

  • Esther 

“Mordecai had a cousin named Hadassah, whom he had brought up because she had neither father nor mother. This young woman, who was also known as Esther, had a lovely figure and was beautiful. Mordecai had taken her as his own daughter when her father and mother died.” (Esther 2:7) 

  • Job’s daughters 

“Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers.” (Job 42:15)
