1 Peter 3:1-10

1 Likewise the wives, being subordinate to their own husbands, so that even if any are disobedient to the word, they will be gained without a word by the behavior of the wives, 2 observing, in fear, your pure behavior. 3 Of which let it not be the outward world of braiding of hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on apparel, 4 but the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible, of the meek and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For this way formerly also, the holy women, trusting in God, adorned themselves, being subordinate to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose children ye became, doing good, and not being afraid of anything fearful. 7 Likewise the husbands living together knowledgably, as with a weaker vessel, apportioning worth to the female as also joint-heirs of the grace of life, for your prayers not to be hindered. 8 And finally, all be like-minded, sympathetic, brother-loving, compassionate, friendly, 9 not rendering evil for evil, or reviling for reviling, but instead giving praise, knowing that ye were called for this, so that ye might inherit a blessing. 10 For he who wants to love life, and see good days, let him restrain his tongue from evil, and his lips not to speak deceit.

Genesis 6:1-22

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair. And they took to them wives of all that they chose. 3 And LORD said, My spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he also is flesh. Yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years. 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days. And also after that, when the sons of God came to the daughters of men, and they bore sons to them, the same were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. 5 And LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And LORD regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart. 7 And LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground, from man, to beast, to creeping things, and birds of the heavens, for I regret that I have made them. 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of LORD. 9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13 And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them, and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood. Thou shall make rooms in the ark, and shall pitch it inside and outside with pitch. 15 And this is how thou shall make it: The length of the ark three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 Thou shall make a light for the ark, and thou shall finish it to a cubit upward. And thou shall set the door of the ark in the side of it, with lower, second, and third stories thou shall make it. 17 And I, behold, I bring the flood of waters upon this earth, to destroy all flesh, in which is the breath of life, from under heaven. Everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish my covenant with thee. And thou shall come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort thou shall bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee. They shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds according to their kind, and of the cattle according to their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground according to its kind. Two of every sort shall come to thee, to keep them alive. 21 And take thou to thee of all food that is eaten, and gather it to thee, and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

Genesis 2:18-25

18 And LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone, I will make a help meet for him. 19 And out of the ground LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every bird of the heavens, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and whatever the man called every living creature, that was the name of it. 20 And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field, but for man there was not found a help meet for him. 21 And LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept. And [God] took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in place of it. 22 And the rib, which LORD God had taken from the man, he made a woman, and brought her to the man. 23 And the man said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cling to his wife, and {the two (LXX/NT)} shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
