Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
20 evermore doing thankings for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God and to the Father [to God and the Father.] 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
21 Be ye subject together in the dread of Christ. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 Women, be they subject to their husbands, as to the Lord, 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
23 for the man is head of the woman, as Christ is head of the church; he is 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 But as the church is subject to Christ, so [and] women 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 Men, love ye your wives, as [and] Christ loved the church, and gave himself for it, 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
26 to make it holy; and cleansed it with the washing of water [that he should make it holy; cleansing it with the washing of water], in the word of life, 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
27 to give the church glorious to himself, that it had no wem, nor rivelling, or any such thing [+that he should give the church glorious to himself, not having wem, or spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing], but that it be holy and undefouled. 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 and men shall 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 hated ever his own flesh, but nourisheth and fostereth it, as [and] Christ doeth 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 And we be members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. [For we be members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.] 30 for we are members of his body.
