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. Genesis 3:16
What does this mean?
The sorrow to me is the pain the woman feels while giving birth. I was reminded of John 16:21. "
"A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world."
Her desire shall be to her husband means that God gives women a desire to be a help to their husband in whatever he does, and her husband shall rule over her. Some take the phrase, "thy desire shall be to thy husband" to mean she will seek to dominate or usurp his authority, but I do not think that is what it is saying. The devil will lead some women to do that, but I do not see that in this verse.
After him repaired Nehemiah the son of Azbuk, the ruler of the half part of Bethzur, unto the place over against the sepulchers of David, and to the pool that was made, and unto the house of the mighty. Nehemiah 3:16
Just as a side note, while there is a third chapter in Ezra, it only contains 13 verses in that chapter, so that is the first book we skip.
And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more. Jeremiah 3:16
Luk 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:
Hos 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. Joel 3:16
