In the same way, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some are disobedient to the word, they may be won over without a word by the conduct of their wives,
[when they]a see your respectful, pure conduct.
Let yourb adornment not be the external [kind], braiding hair and putting on gold jewelry or putting on [fine] clothing,
but the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable [quality] of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is highly valuable in the sight of God.
For in the [same] way formerly the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves [by]c being subject to their own husbands,
like Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose children you have become [when you]d do good and are not frightened with respect to any terror.
