WAR (see also: Genocide)

God loves a good war, and usually causes one, rather than handle a situation by himself.

“The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name.” [Exo 15: 3]

“Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.” [Prov 20: 18]

“And Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, stood before it in those days,) saying, Shall I yet again go out to battle against the children of Benjamin my brother, or shall I cease? And the Lord said, Go up; for to morrow I will deliver them into thine hand.” “And there came against Gibeah ten thousand chosen men out of all Israel, and the battle was sore: but they knew not that evil was near them.” “And the Lord smote Benjamin before Israel: and the children of Israel destroyed of the Benjamites that day twenty and five thousand and an hundred men: all these drew the sword.” “And when the men of Israel turned again, the men of Benjamin were amazed: for they saw that evil was come upon them.” [Judg 20: 28,34,35,41]

"For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth." "And thou shalt consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee." "Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the Lord thy God is among you, a mighty God and terrible." [Deut 7: 6,16,21]

“Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities” [1 Tim 5:23]

(God brings forth) “and wine that maketh glad the heart of man...” [Psa 104:15]

“And in this mountain shall the lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.” [Isa 25:6]

“And the vine said unto them, should I leave my wine, which cheereth God and man...” [Judg 9:13]

“Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.” [Exo 22: 18]

“Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord.” [Lev 19: 31]

God speaking: “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be* to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” [Gen 3:16] (* or: “...subject to thy...”)

“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.” “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.” “Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.” [Eph 5: 22-24]

“For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:” “But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.” “Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.” [Prov 5: 3-5]

“It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.” [Prov 21: 19]

“A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.” [Prov 27: 15]

“The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the Lord shall fall therein.” [Prov 22: 14]

“For a whore is a deep ditch: and a strange woman is a narrow pit.” “She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.” [Prov 23: 27-28]

“Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” “Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.” [Job 14: 1,4]

“What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous.” [Job 15: 14]

“How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman?” [Job 25: 4]

"And a certain woman cast a piece of a millstone upon Abimelech's head, and all to brake his skull." "Then he called hastily unto the young man, his armourbearer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him. And his young man thrust him through, and he died." [Judg 9: 53-54]

"And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her." [Eccl 7: 26]

“...If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days;...” “And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days;...” “But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days” [Lev 12: 2,4,5] Note: after her purifying, she must make a sin offering, and the priest must make an atonement for her, before she is clean.

“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.” [Colo 3: 18]

“That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,” “To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” [Titus 2: 4-5]

“Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the coversation of the wives;” “While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.” “Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;” “But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.” “For after the manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:” “Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.” [1 Peter 3: 1-6]

God considered menstruation very serious business:

“...she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the even.” “And every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall be unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean.” “And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.” “And whosoever toucheth any thing that she sat upon shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.” [Lev 15: 19-22]

“But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean.” “And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles, or two young pigeons, and bring them unto the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.” “And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for her before the Lord for the issue of her uncleanness.” [Lev 15: 28-30]

“And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.” [Lev 20: 18]

Ownership issues:

“The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father’s nakedness.” [Lev 18: 8]

“Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife: it is thy brother’s nakedness.” [Lev 18: 16]

“And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; she shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death, because she was not free.” “And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the Lord, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a ram for a trespass offering.” “And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering before the Lord for his sin which he hath done: and the sin which he hath done shall be forgiven him.” [Lev 19: 20-22]

“It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:” “But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.” [Matt 5: 31-32]
