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,
that he might sanctify it, having cleansed [it] with the bathing of the water in the saying,
that he might present it to himself the assembly in glory, not having spot or wrinkle, or any of such things, but that it may be holy and unblemished;
so ought the husbands to love their own wives as their own bodies: he who is loving his own wife -- himself he doth love;
for no one ever his own flesh did hate, but doth nourish and cherish it, as also the Lord -- the assembly,
because members we are of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones;
