Wives, submit to your husbands1 as to the Lord.223
For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church,3 his body, of which he is the Savior.
Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands4 in everything.
Husbands, love your wives,5 just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her626
to make her holy,7 cleansinga her by the washing8 with water through the word,
and to present her to himself9 as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.10
