For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,
because 1we are members of his body.
2"Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and 3the two shall become one flesh."
This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.
However, 4let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she 5respects her husband.
