Everything about infertile women in The Bible

Everything about infertile women in The Bible

The Bible contains arguably the most famous quote in literature in reference to the reproduction of humankind.

Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth”. (Genesis 1:28)

During the multiple eras of early civilization the world was a harsh and inhospitable place, often at war, and the archetypal husband and wife surrounded themselves with many children to bring them laughter and joy, comfort and good company, to defence the home, uphold the family name, and provide continuity to the family bloodline.

A barren wife within this early patriarchal civilization was put under immense pressure to conceive and give birth. In some ancient cultures the condition of barrenness was grounds for divorce; a husband exercised the right to divorce his wife or include a concubine to the family unit for the sole purpose of children bearing.

In Christianity children are indeed a blessing and Scripture offers a broader outlook on women dealing with infertility. The Bible offers comfort and solace to women who struggle with childlessness and praises the long-suffering women for their strength and commitment, whilst commending the husbands who choose to stand by their wives and share the burden of childlessness together.

Among other reports, the readers’ attention is called to Abraham, and his barren wife Sarah. Abraham’s devotion to his wife is considered proper husbandly self-control, patience and love.

The message to the barren woman seeking a child is to reject depression and harassment and to stay strong, have faith, accept her infertility, but to also have faith and believe that the impossible can become possible.

"By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age”.   (Hebrews 11:11)
