Coverdale(i) 23 For the hussbande is the wyues heade, eue as Christ also is the heade of the congregacion, and he is the Sauioure of his body. 24 Therfore as the congregacion is in subieccion to Christ, likewyse let the wyues be in subieccion to their hussbandes in all thinges. 25 Ye hussbandes loue youre wyues, euen as Christ loued the congregacion, and gaue himselfe for it, 26 to sanctifye it, and clensed it in the fountayne of water by the worde, 27 to make it vnto himselfe a glorious congregacion, hauynge no spot ner wrynkle, ner eny soch thinge, but that it shulde be holy and without blame. 28 So oughte men also to loue their wyues, euen as their awne bodyes. He that loueth his wife, loueth himselfe. 29 For no ma euer yet hated his awne flesshe, but norisheth and cherissheth it, euen as the LORDE doth also the congregacion. 30 For we are membres of his body, of his flesh and of his bones. 31 For this cause shal a man leaue father and mother, and cleue vnto his wife, and they two shal be one flesh: 32 This is a greate secrete: but I speake of Christ and the congregacion. 33 Neuertheles do ye so, that euery one of you loue his wife euen as himselfe: but let the wife feare hir hussbande.
