Ephesians 5:20-30

LEB 20 giving thanks always for all [things] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to the God and Father, NIV 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. LEB 21 being subject to one another {out of reverence for} Christ NIV 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. LEB 22 --wives to their own husbands as to the Lord, NIV 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. LEB 23 because [the] husband is [the] head of the wife, as also Christ [is the] head of the church (he himself [being the] Savior 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. LEB 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, thus also wives [should be subject] to their husbands in everything. NIV 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. LEB 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for her; NIV 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her LEB 26 in order that he might sanctify her by cleansing [her] with the washing of water by the word; NIV 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, LEB 27 in order that he might present to himself the church glorious, not having a spot or wrinkle or any such [thing], but that she may be holy and blameless. NIV 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. LEB 28 Thus also husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. The one who loves his own wife loves himself. NIV 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. LEB 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as also Christ [does] 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-- LEB 30 because we are members of his body. NIV 30 for we are members of his body.
