The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
20 giving thanks at all times for all things to him [who is] God and [the] Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
21 submitting yourselves to one another in [the] fear of Christ. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Wives, [submit yourselves] to your own husbands, as to the Lord, 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
23 for a husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly. *He* [is] Saviour 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 even as the assembly is subjected to the Christ, so also wives to their own husbands in everything. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your own wives, even as the Christ also loved the assembly, and has delivered himself up for it, 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
26 in order that he might sanctify it, purifying [it] by the washing of water by [the] word, 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
27 that *he* might present the assembly to himself glorious, having no spot, or wrinkle, or any of such things; but that it might be holy and blameless. 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
28 So ought men also to love their own wives as their own bodies: he that loves his own wife loves himself. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
29 For no one has ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, even as also the Christ the assembly: 29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church--
30 for we are members of his body; [we are of his flesh, and of his bones.] 30 for we are members of his body.
