NSB(i) 1 In like manner, you wives, be in subjection to your own husbands. Even if your husband does not obey God’s word, he may be won without a word by observing the way you live. 2 Your husband could see your chaste behavior coupled with respect (reverence). 3 Your appearance should not come from the outward adornment, things like braiding the hair, and wearing jewels of gold, or wearing fine apparel. 4 Let your appearance be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible apparel of a meek and quiet spirit. This is of great value in the sight of God. 5 The holy women of old, who hoped in God, adorned themselves this way, being submissive to their own husbands. 6 Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him lord. You are her children now, if you do what is right and are not fearful. 7 In the same way, you husbands live with your wives in an understanding way. Honor the woman as the weaker vessel. For you are joint-heirs of the grace of life. May your prayers not be hindered (cut-off) (blocked).
