In every period in the life of Gods people in the Old Testament, women were called to step forward, coming to the aid of helpless people. When God determined to give Adam a mate in Genesis 2, he called her ezer knegdoa helper equal to the man. But that word helper can trip us up if we think of the woman as a kind of assistant or as a plumbers apprentice. An ezer helper has knowledge or skills needed by someone else and uses them to come to that persons aid. This Bible study looks at individual ezer women in Israels historywomen such as Rahab as convert, Deborah as judge, Ruth as provider, Shiphrah and Puah as midwives, Miriam as leader, Abigail as intermediary, Huldah as interpreter of Gods law, Esther as queen, and Lady Wisdom of Proverbs as the sum of an ezer woman.
