Wives, likewise, submit to your own husbands. Do this so that even if some of them refuse to believe the word, they may be won without a word by their wives' way of life.
After all, they will have observed the reverent and holy manner of your lives.
Don't try to make yourselves beautiful on the outside, with stylish hair or by wearing gold jewelry or fine clothes.
Instead, make yourselves beautiful on the inside, in your hearts, with the enduring quality of a gentle, peaceful spirit. This type of beauty is very precious in God's eyes.
For it was in this way that holy women who trusted in God used to make themselves beautiful, accepting the authority of their own husbands.
For example, Sarah accepted Abraham's authority when she called him master. You have become her children when you do good and don't respond to threats with fear.
