Chapter 6 "A Contentious Woman"

 "A constant dripping on a day of steady rain
and a contentious woman are alike;
he who would restrain her restrains the wind
and grasps oil with his right hand."
Proverbs 27:15-16.

箴言 27:15-16

Ask yourself, "Am I a contentious woman?"

Maybe that question is difficult to answer because you're not exactly sure what a contentious woman is. If we check the Strong's Concordance, the word contention is "midyan" (mid-yawn) which means a contest, a quarrel, strife, or a quarrelsome and argumentative spirit.


Are your conversations with your husband usually or many times a contest to see who will win or get his or her way? Do you win most of the time? I confess that I was a contentious wife and I won often - or maybe most of the time. But, actually, I lost! I lost my husband and the family life we had. God warns us in His Word about the contentious woman. The Bible says that we perish for a lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). Are you aware of God's warnings?
