See, then, how exactly ye walk, not as unwise, but as wise,
redeeming the time, because the days are evil;
because of this become not fools, but -- understanding what [is] the will of the Lord,
and be not drunk with wine, in which is dissoluteness, but be filled in the Spirit,
speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,
giving thanks always for all things, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to the God and Father;
subjecting yourselves to one another in the fear of God.
The wives! to your own husbands subject yourselves, as to the Lord,
because the husband is head of the wife, as also the Christ [is] head of the assembly, and he is saviour of the body,
but even as the assembly is subject to Christ, so also [are] the wives to their own husbands in everything.
The husbands! love your own wives, as also the Christ did love the assembly, and did give himself for it,
