While they beholdyourchasteconversation coupled withfear.3Whoseadorning let itnotbe that outward adorning of plaiting the hair,and of wearing of gold,or of putting on of apparel;4But let it be the hiddenman of the heart,in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meekandquietspirit,whichis in the sight of God of great price.5For after this manner in the old time the holywomenalso,whotrustedinGod,adornedthemselves, being in subjection unto their ownhusbands:6
Even asSaraobeyedAbraham,callinghimlord:whosedaughtersa ye are , as long as ye do well , andarenotafraid with anyamazement.7Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according toknowledge,givinghonour unto the wife,as unto the weakervessel,andas being heirs together of the grace of life;thatyourprayersbenothindered .
8Finally , be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:9Notrenderingevilforevil,orrailingforrailing:butcontrariwiseblessing;knowingthat ye arethereuntocalled , that ye should inherit a blessing .
10For he that willlovelife,andseegooddays, let him refrainhistonguefromevil,andhislips that they speaknoguile:11
Let him eschewevil,anddogood; let him seekpeace,andensueit.12For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous,andhisears are open untotheirprayers:but the face of the Lord is againstb them that doevil.
