making the most of the time,a because the days are evil.
So don't be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is.
And don't get drunk with wine, which [leads to] reckless actions, but be filled with the Spirit:
speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music to the Lord in your heart,
giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
submitting to one another in the fear of Christ.b
Wives, submitcd to your own husbands as to the Lord,
for the husband is head of the wife as also Christ is head of the church. He is the Savior of the body.
Now as the church submits to Christ, so wives should [submit] to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives,e just as also Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her,
to make her holy, cleansingf her in the washing of water by the word.
