Wives and Husbands

1 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, 2 [when they]a see your respectful, pure conduct. 3 Let yourb adornment not be the external [kind], braiding hair and putting on gold jewelry or putting on [fine] clothing, 4 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. 5 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, 6 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. 7 Husbands, in the same way live with [your wives] {knowledgeably}e, as with the weaker female vessel, showing [them] honor as fellow heirs also of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.
