23 because [the] husband is [the] head of the wife, as also Christ [is the] head of the church (he himself [being the] Savior of the body). 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
24 But as the church is subject to Christ, thus also wives [should be subject] to their husbands in everything. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
