In this post, I’ve compiled over 30 Bible verses for young women from the Old Testament. Not all of these verses are specifically written to women… however, these verses cover different topics that apply to young women. In this list you will find verses about our amazing God, verses on trusting God, waiting on God, and more! It is my hope that you will claim these verses as your own, memorize them, meditate on them and allow the Word of God to work in your heart and life. Each verse is written out (below) in the King James Version of the Bible.
