Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
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. 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 Now as the church submits to Christ, so wives should [submit] 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 also Christ 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 to make her holy, cleansing her in the washing of water by the word. 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
27 He did this to present the church to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but 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 In the same way, husbands should love their 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 hates his own flesh, but provides and cares for it, just as Christ does for 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 since we are members of His body. 30 for we are members of his body.
31 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. 31 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."
32 This mystery is profound, but I am talking about Christ and the church. 32 This is a profound mystery--but I am talking about Christ and the church.
33 To sum up, each one of you is to love his wife as himself, and the wife is to respect her husband. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
