251Husbands, love your wives, just as Christalsoloved the church and 2gaveHimself up for her,
263so that He might sanctify her, having 4cleansed her by the 5washing of water with 6the word,
that He might 7present to Himself the churchain all her glory, havingnospotorwrinkleoranysuchthing; but that she would be 8holy and blameless.
28Sohusbandsoughtalso to 9love their ownwives as their ownbodies. He who loves his ownwifeloveshimself;
for nooneeverhated his ownflesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christalso does the church,
30because we are 10members of His 11body.
