1 G3668 In like manner G3588 the G1135 wives, G5293 being submitted G3588 to their G2398 own G435 husbands; G2443 that G2532 even G1536 if any G544 resist persuasion G3588 to the G3056 word, G1223 by G3588 the G3588 [2of the G1135 3wives G391 1behavior G427 5without G3056 6a word G2770 4they shall be gained],
3 G3739 Whom G1510.5 let there not be G3756 G3588 the G1855 outward G1708 braiding G2359 of hair, G2532 and G4025 adornment G5553 of gold G2228 or G1745 clothing G2440 of garments G2889 of ornamentation!
4 G235 But let it be G3588 the G2927 hidden G3588 [2of the G2588 3heart G444 1mankind], G1722 in G3588 the G862 incorruptible ornament G3588 of the G4239 gentle G2532 and G2272 unassuming G4151 spirit, G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G1799 [2in the presence of G3588 G2316 3of God G4185 1lavish].
5 G3779 For thus G1063 G4218 at some time or other G2532 also G3588 the G39 holy G1135 women, G3588 the ones G1679 hoping G1909 upon G3588 G2316 God, G2885 adorned G1438 themselves, G5293 being submitted G3588 to their G2398 own G435 husbands;
6 G5613 as G* Sarah G5219 obeyed G3588 to G* Abraham, G2962 [3lord G1473 2him G2564 1calling]; G3739 of whom G1096 you became G5043 children, G15 doing good G2532 and G3361 not G5399 fearing G3367 with any G4423 terror.
7 G3588 The G435 husbands, G3668 in like manner, G4924 living with them G2596 according to G1108 knowledge, G5613 as G772 being a weaker G4632 utensil G3588 in the G1134 feminine way, G632 bestowing G5092 honor G5613 as G2532 also G4789 joint-heirs G5484 of favor G2222 of life, G1519 so as to not G3588 G3361 G1465 hinder G3588 G4335 your prayers. G1473
8 G3588 But the G1161 G5056 conclusion -- G3956 all be G3675 agreeing, G4835 sympathizing, G5361 having brotherly affection, G2155 compassionate, G5391 obliging,
9 G3361 not G591 rendering G2556 evil G473 for G2556 evil, G2228 or G3059 reviling G473 for G3059 reviling; G5121 but on the other hand, G1161 G2127 blessing, G1492 knowing G3754 that G1519 in G3778 this G2564 you were called, G2443 that G2129 [2a blessing G2816 1you should inherit].
10 G3588 For the one G1063 G2309 wanting G2222 [2life G25 1to love], G2532 and G1492 to behold G2250 [2days G18 1good], G3973 let him cease G3588 G1100 his tongue G1473 G575 from G2556 evil, G2532 and G5491 his lips G1473 G3588 G3361 to not speak G2980 G1388 deceit!
11 G1578 Let him turn aside G575 from G2556 evil, G2532 and G4160 let him do G18 good! G2212 Let him seek G1515 peace, G2532 and G1377 pursue G1473 it!
12 G3754 For G3588 the G3788 eyes G2962 of the Lord G1909 are upon G1342 the righteous, G2532 and G3775 his ears G1473 G1519 towards G1162 their supplication. G1473 G4383 But the face G1161 G2962 of the Lord G1909 is against G4160 the ones doing G2556 evil.
13 G2532 And G5100 who is G3588 the one G2559 afflicting G1473 you, G1437 if G3588 [3of the G18 4good G3402 2mimics G1096 1you should become]?
14 G235 But G1487 if G2532 also G3958 you may suffer G1223 because of G1343 righteousness, G3107 blessed are you; G3588 but the G1161 G5401 fear G1473 of them G3361 you should not G5399 fear, G3366 nor G5015 should you be disturbed.
15 G2962 [3 the Lord G1161 1But G3588 G2316 4God G37 2sanctify] G1722 in G3588 G2588 your hearts, G1473 G2092 and be ready G1161 G104 continually G4314 for G627 a defense G3956 to all, G3588 to the one G154 asking G1473 you G3056 a word G4012 concerning G3588 the G1722 [2in G1473 3you G1680 1hope], G3326 with G4240 gentleness G2532 and G5401 fear;
16 G4893 [3conscience G2192 1having G18 2a good], G2443 that G1722 in G3739 what G2635 they should speak ill G1473 of you G5613 as G2555 ones doing evil, G2617 [8should be put to shame G3588 1the ones G1908 2threatening G1473 3your G3588 G18 4good G1722 6in G5547 7Christ G391 5behavior].
17 G2908 For it is better G1063 G15 [7 for doing good G1487 1if G2309 5wants you G3588 2the G2307 3will G3588 G2316 4of God G3958 6to suffer], G2228 than G2554 doing evil.
18 G3754 For G2532 Christ also G5547 G530 [2once G4012 3for G266 4sins G3958 1suffered], G1342 the just G5228 for G94 the unjust, G2443 that G1473 he should lead us forward G4317 G3588 to G2316 God, G2289 having put to death G3303 indeed G4561 the flesh, G2227 but being restored to life G1161 G3588 to the G4151 spirit;
19 G1722 in G3739 which G2532 also G3588 [3to the G1722 5in G5438 6prison G4151 4spirits G4198 1having gone G2784 2he proclaimed],
20 G544 to the ones who disobeyed G4218 at some time or other, G3753 when G530 once G1209 [4was accepted G3588 1the G3588 G2316 3of God G3115 2long-suffering] G1722 in G2250 the days G* of Noah, G2680 carefully preparing G2787 the ark, G1519 in G3739 which G3641 few, G5123 that is to say, G3638 eight G5590 souls G1295 were preserved G1223 through G5204 water.
21 G3739 Which G2532 [2also G1473 5us G499 1antitype G3568 3now G4982 4delivers] -- G908 immersion, G3756 not G4561 the flesh G595 getting rid of G4509 filth, G235 but G4893 [3conscience G18 2of a good G1906 1 the response] G1519 towards G2316 God, G1223 through G386 the resurrection G* of Jesus G5547 Christ,
