Likewise, wives, 1be subject to your own husbands, so that 2even if some do not obey the word, 3they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives,
when they see your 4respectful and pure conduct.
35Do not let your adorning be external--the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear--
but let your adorning be 6the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands,
as Sarah obeyed Abraham, 7calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and 8do not fear anything that is frightening.
Likewise, 9husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker 10vessel, since they are heirs with youa of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
