1 Peter 3:11 Peter 3:7


5. In Marriage Life

1 In 1like manner, awives, be subject to your own husbands, that even if any disobey the 2word, they will be gained without the 2word through the manner of life of their bwives,

2 Seeing with their own eyes your 1pure manner of life 2in 3afear.

3 Let your aadorning not be the outward 1plaiting of hair and putting on of bgold or clothing with garments,

4 But the 1hidden man of the aheart in the incorruptible adornment of a meek and quiet bspirit, which is very ccostly in the sight of God.

5 For in this manner formerly the holy women also, who ahoped in God, adorned themselves, being bsubject to their own husbands,

6 As Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him alord; whose children you have become, if you do good and do not bfear any 1terror.

7 aHusbands, in like manner dwell together with them 1according to knowledge, as with the 2weaker, female 3vessel, 4assigning bhonor to them as also to cfellow heirs of the 5grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.
