The Bible has many teachings that worn against domestic violence.
To those men who beat their wife's, the Bible says the following;
1) Ist Peter 3:19, the Bible says; as a man, you're the head of the family. Therefore you should live peacefully with your wife. Husband and wife should live in mutual understanding with each other. This verse continues saying that; man should respect and show honor to his wife as a weak vessel.
2) Ephesians 5:28- 29 the Bible says; "In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife, loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church". This means that, husband should love his wife as he loves his own body. The body has been used here just because no one has ever torture his or her body; since if he or she tries so, he will feel pain. Therefore husband should not beat up his wife, instead he should treat her with love and care like he does to his body.
3) Psalm 11:1- 7, the Bible says; "To the choirmaster of David, in the Lord I take refuge. How can you say to my soul, “Flee like a bird to your mountain, for behold the wicked bend the bow. They have fitted their arrow to the string to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart..........The Lord is in his holy temple and his throne is in heaven. The Lord eyes see as his eyelids test the children of man. The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence". This verse teaches that; God do not permit violence, therefore husband should not beat his wife; because if he does so, he does so he would have committed violence and the Bible is against it.
4) Timothy 3:3, the Bible says; "Not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money". Here, the Bible tries to worn against drunkardness, quarreling and violence. Husband should not quarrels with his wife, instead he should be gentle and peaceful.
