1 Wives, likewise, subject yourselves to your own husbands, so that even if some are disobedient to the word, that by the conduct of their wives, without a word, they shall be gained for Christ, 2 when they observe your chaste conduct with fear. 3 Of whom let it not be the outward adorning of braiding of hair, and wearing of gold, or of putting on of fine clothes, 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible attitude of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious before God. 5 For thus formerly, the holy women who hoped on God also adorned themselves, subjecting themselves to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, of whom you became children, when you do good and are not afraid of any terror. 7 Husbands, likewise, live together according to knowledge as with a weaker vessel, with the wife, showing her honor as also a fellow heir of the grace of life, in order that your prayers may not be hindered.
