Ephesians 5:20-30

BBE 20 Giving praise at all times for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God, even the Father; NIV 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. BBE 21 Letting yourselves be ruled by one another in the fear of Christ. NIV 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. BBE 22 Wives, be under the authority of your husbands, as of the Lord. NIV 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. BBE 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church, being himself the saviour of the body. NIV 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. BBE 24 And as the church is under Christ's authority, so let wives be under the rule of their husbands in all things. NIV 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. BBE 25 Husbands, have love for your wives, even as Christ had love for the church, and gave himself for it; NIV 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her BBE 26 So that he might make it holy, having made it clean with the washing of water by the word, NIV 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, BBE 27 And might take it for himself, a church full of glory, not having one mark or fold or any such thing; but that it might be holy and complete. NIV 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. BBE 28 Even so it is right for husbands to have love for their wives as for their bodies. He who has love for his wife has love for himself: NIV 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. BBE 29 For no man ever had hate for his flesh; but he gives it food and takes care of it, even as Christ does for the church; NIV 29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church-- BBE 30 Because we are parts of his body. NIV 30 for we are members of his body.
