Young's Literal Translation (YLT) 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 subjecting yourselves to one another in the fear of God. 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
22 The wives! to your own husbands subject yourselves, as to the Lord, 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
23 because the husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly, and 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 subject to Christ, so also [are] the 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 The husbands! love your own wives, as also the Christ did love the assembly, and did give himself 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, having cleansed [it] with the bathing of the water in the saying, 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
27 that he might present it to himself the assembly in glory, not having spot or wrinkle, or any of such things, but that it may be holy and unblemished; 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 the husbands to love their own wives as their own bodies: he who is loving his own wife -- himself he doth love; 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 his own flesh did hate, but doth nourish and cherish it, as also the Lord -- 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 because members we are of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones; 30 for we are members of his body.
