New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
20 giving thanks always for all things to God 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 to one another in the fear of God. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is 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 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be 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 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 that He might sanctify and cleanse 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 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 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 husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his 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 the Lord 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 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. 30 for we are members of his body.
