WNT 21 and submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. NIV 21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. WNT 22 Married women, submit to your own husbands as if to the Lord; NIV 22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. WNT 23 because a husband is the Head of his wife as Christ also is the Head of the Church, being indeed the Saviour of this His 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. WNT 24 And just as the Church submits to Christ, so also married women should be entirely submissive to their husbands. NIV 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. WNT 25 Married men, love your wives, as Christ also loved the Church and gave Himself up to death for her; NIV 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her WNT 26 in order to make her holy, cleansing her with the baptismal water by the word, NIV 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, WNT 27 that He might present the Church to Himself a glorious bride, without spot or wrinkle or any other defect, but to be holy and unblemished. NIV 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. WNT 28 So too married men ought to love their wives as much as they love themselves. He who loves his 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. WNT 29 For never yet has a man hated his own body. On the contrary he feeds and cherishes it, just as Christ feeds and cherishes 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-- WNT 30 because we are, as it were, parts of His Body. NIV 30 for we are members of his body.
