Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
20 giving thanks always for all [things] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to the God and Father, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
21 being subject to one another {out of reverence for} Christ 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 --wives to their own husbands as to the Lord, 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
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.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for her; 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
26 in order that he might sanctify her by cleansing [her] with the washing of water by the word; 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
27 in order that he might present to himself the church glorious, not having a spot or wrinkle or any such [thing], but that she may 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 Thus also husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. The one who 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 ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as also Christ [does] the church, 29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church--
30 because we are members of his body. 30 for we are members of his body.
