Strong Woman In The Bible

The strong woman in the bible was not born a conqueror. She had her struggles just like we do, if not more when she was alive. But what makes her a conqueror is the way she dealt with the struggles.

Proverbs 31:10-13 in the KJV says that “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.” This is a great verse to start when you want to know what makes a Proverbs 31 woman.

There was a very righteous woman in the Bible named Rahab, who saved the spies Joshua had sent to Jericho to scout it out and spy out its land (Joshua 2:1-21).

No doubt about it, strong women in the Bible are champions. They’re tenacious, God-fearing, and some even invented how to care for a baby. The women in this list are just as cherished as any figure of men in scripture, and they’ve always been. Do you remember that time God had to tell his own people to not oppress the women or mistreat them? He was basically making sure nobody did what Potiphar did to Joseph’s wife.

Strong Woman In The Bible

Miriam, with her brothers Moses and Aaron, led the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt to the Promised Land of Canaan. Miriam rounds out the trio of leaders as a woman of action who lifts the spirits of the wandering Hebrew people at an important time.

Miriam was a feisty leader from her early years. As a young girl, Miriam helped rescue baby brother Moses, hidden by his mother to avoid the pharaoh’s decree that all baby boys be killed. Miriam watched the pharaoh’s daughter lift Moses from the reeds on the bank of the Nile River. Then Miriam fetched their Hebrew mother, who nursed Moses until the pharaoh’s daughter raised him as her own royal son (Exodus 1:22—Exodus 2:10). Miriam saved the first leader of the Israelites heading to the Promised Land.

Miriam continued to support Moses in his leadership of the Israelites. She showed her pluck in leading the celebration after God parted the waters of the Red Sea. The Israelites had safely arrived on the far shore of the sea and—observing the dead bodies and ruined chariots of the drowned Egyptian army in this wild escape adventure—they were ready to party. Miriam led the women in banging a tambourine, dancing, and singing for joy, “The horse and its rider he has hurled into the sea” (Exodus 15:19-21).
