Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
20 Giving thanks always for all things, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God and the Father: 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
21 Being subject one to another, in the fear of Christ. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Let women be subject to their 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 Christ is the head of the church. He is the saviour of his 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 as the church is subject to Christ: so also let the wives be to their husbands in all things. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ also loved the church and delivered himself up for it: 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
26 That he might sanctify it, cleansing it by the laver of water in the word of life: 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
27 That he might present it to himself, a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it 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 also ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth 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 man ever hated his own flesh, but nourisheth and cherisheth it, as also Christ doth 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 him, body, of his flesh and of his bones. 30 for we are members of his body.
