11In the sameway, you wives, 2be submissive to your ownhusbandsso that evenifany of them are disobedient to the word, they may be 3wonwithout a word by the behavior of their wives,
as they observe your chaste and arespectfulbehavior.
34Your adornment must not be merely external-braiding the hair, and wearinggoldjewelry, orputting on dresses ;
but let it be 5the hiddenperson of the heart, with the imperishablequality of a gentle and quietspirit, which is precious in the sight of God.
For in thisway in formertimes the holywomenalso, 6who hoped in God, used to adornthemselves, being submissive to their ownhusbands ;
6just as SarahobeyedAbraham, 7calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is rightb8without being frightened by anyfear.
