English Standard Version

1 Peter 3:1-7

MSG 1 The same goes for you wives: Be good wives to your husbands, responsive to their needs. There are husbands who, indifferent as they are to any words about God, will be captivated ESV 1 Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, MSG 2 by your life of holy beauty. ESV 2 when they see your respectful and pure conduct. MSG 3 What matters is not your outer appearance - the styling of your hair, the jewelry you wear, the cut of your clothes - ESV 3 Do not let your adorning be external--the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear-- MSG 4 but your inner disposition. ESV 4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. MSG 5 The holy women of old were beautiful before God that way, and were good, loyal wives to their husbands. ESV 5 For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, MSG 6 Sarah, for instance, taking care of Abraham, would address him as "my dear husband." You'll be true daughters of Sarah if you do the same, unanxious and unintimidated. ESV 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening. MSG 7 The same goes for you husbands: Be good husbands to your wives. Honor them, delight in them. As women they lack some of your advantages. But in the new life of God's grace, you're equals. Treat your wives, then, as equals so your prayers don't run aground. Suffering for Doing Good ESV 7 Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
