Wives and Husbands

1 Peter 3

1 Wives, likewise, be a submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, b they, without a word, may c be won by the conduct of their wives, 2 d when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. 3 e Do not let your adornment be merely outward - arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel - 4 rather let it be f the hidden person of the heart, with the 1 incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, g calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

7 h Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, i as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, j that your prayers may not be hindered.
