Nagging wife

“Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30) (KJV)

“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price [is] far above rubies.” (Proverbs 31:10) (KJV)

Womanhood is such a wonderful and challenging experience. The woman was created by divine plan to fulfil a unique and divine purpose. It is to be noted that every woman, without exception is expected to live a life that is worthy of emulation.


Insincerity – She uses flattering speech or seductive words, giving insincere praise with a wrong motive (Proverbs 2:16, 6:24, 7:5)
Adulterous woman

Evil and Destroyer – She is evil and seeks to destroyer others by drawing them into sin (Proverbs 6:24-26, Genesis 39: 6-18). She is wicked and cruel. Jezebel the wife of Ahab is an example of such evil woman (1 Kings 20: 1-16). She is always on assignment to destroy. She has different destructive weapons.

Subtle – She is deceptive and subtle. She misleads people by making them believe what is not true. She always behaves in a clever way, and uses indirect methods to achieve what she does not deserve. She is pictured as a deceptive pit which causes others to fall. Delilah fits into this category. She plotted Samson’s destruction and succeeded. (Judges 16:6-31)

Contentious – “Contentious” means to be argumentative, always involved in controversy or contentious meetings. It is better to dwell in the wilderness than with this type of a woman as qualified in the Bible. They are dangerous elements which you should not have relationship with. (Proverbs 19:13, 27:15, 21:19).

A brawler – She is very lousy and fights noisily (Proverbs 25:24). Proverbs warns against this type of woman. A brawler cannot be a good companion.

Adulterous – This woman always involves in adulterous physical relationship (Proverbs 21:19, 5:20). She derives pleasure in allowing different “keys” to open her door or allow different “water drawer” to fetch water from her “well”. 

Angry – Anger is always written on the face of this type of woman (Proverbs 21:19).
Angry wife
She loses her temper at every little provocation. She makes life unpleasant for her household that is why the book of proverbs 21:19 says “It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and angry woman.” Anger is synonymous with madness and any woman with this attitude is not fit to relate with.

Unprofitable – She can plunge you into financial crises and ruin (Proverbs 27: 13). She is wasteful and unprofitable. She does not consider her man’s purse before requesting and purchasing anything that can bring debt and shame to the family.

Foolish and Clamorous – She lacks wisdom and knowledge. She is fond of complaining and frequently demanding for high things (Proverbs 9:13). Also, she is unwise, stupid and lacks good sense of judgement. She is very loud and does her things foolishly.

Loose Tongue – She uses her tongue anyhow by gossiping, pulling others down, bragging, manipulating through false teaching, exaggerating, lying, backbiting, cursing and telling fake tales. This type of woman is suffering from what is called “oral diarrhea”, etc. (Proverbs 10:19, 17:28, James 1:19)

Pride – She is a woman that behaves in a proud and unpleasant way. She always destroys herself because of pride. A proud woman can never be a good wife or mother (Proverbs 16:18)

Nagging – To nag means to cause confusion, pain etc continuously, ungodly woman nag all day long. Nagging is not of God so any woman in this category does not worth to associate with.

Envy and Jealousy – The two are like twins which cannot be separated. These acts are obvious in the lives of an ungodly woman. God detests envy, jealousy and every sin.  Envious woman can engage in anything evil, so be careful of her. 

Malice – It is a devilish act and this evil character abounds in an ungodly woman. A woman keeping malice do herself more harm whenever she sees the person she is keeping malice with. 

Keeping malice is evil!

The book of Proverbs in the Holy Bible describes the strange woman as a rather unpleasant woman for a wife and teaches that such a woman should be avoided. He warned that it is better to dwell in the housetop, wilderness or in a corner of the housetop than to dwell with her. (Proverbs 21:9)

You can imagine how dangerous a strange woman is, by seeing that living in a housetop or wilderness will be better than staying with her. This means she is toxic and can make journey of life miserable and frustrating for anyone that marries her. So men “shine your eyes” well before engaging in a marital relationship with any lady. 

God bless you.
