On this account do not prove yourselves wanting in sense, but try to understand what the Lord's will is.
Do not over-indulge in wine--a thing in which excess is so easy--
but drink deeply of God's Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and offer praise in your hearts to the Lord.
Always and for everything let your thanks to God the Father be presented in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
and submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Married women, submit to your own husbands as if to the Lord;
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.
And just as the Church submits to Christ, so also married women should be entirely submissive to their husbands.
Married men, love your wives, as Christ also loved the Church and gave Himself up to death for her;
in order to make her holy, cleansing her with the baptismal water by the word,
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.
