  20 G2168 giving thanks G3842 at all times G5228 for G3956 all things G1722 in G3686 the name G3588   G2962 of our Lord G1473   G* Jesus G5547 Christ, G3588 to the G2316 God G2532 and G3962 father;

  22 G3588 [2the G1135 3wives G3588 5to their G2398 6own G435 7husbands G5293 1Let 4submit], G5613 as G3588 to the G2962 Lord!
  23 G3754 For G3588 the G435 husband G1510.2.3 is G2776 head G3588 of the G1135 wife, G5613 as G2532 also G3588 the G5547 Christ G2776 is head G3588 of the G1577 assembly, G2532 and G1473 he G1510.2.3 is G4990 deliverer G3588 of the G4983 body.
  24 G235 But G5618 as G3588 the G1577 assembly G5293 submits G3588 to the G5547 Christ, G3779 so G2532 also G3588 the G1135 wives G3588 to their G2398 own G435 husbands G1722 in G3956 all things .
  25 G3588 [2the G435 3husbands G25 1Let] love G3588   G1135 their own wives, G1438   G2531 as G2532 also G3588 the G5547 Christ G25 loved G3588 the G1577 assembly, G2532 and G1438 delivered himself up G3860   G5228 for G1473 it;
  26 G2443 that G1473 he should sanctify it, G37   G2511 having cleansed it G3588 by the G3067 bath G3588   G5204 of water G1722 by G4487 the word;
  27 G2443 that G3936 he should present G1473 it G1438 to himself G1741 [2honorable G3588 1the G1577 3assembly], G3361 not G2192 having G4695 stain, G2228 or G4512 wrinkle, G2228 or G5100 any G3588   G5108 such things; G235 but G2443 that G1510.3 it should be G39 holy G2532 and G299 unblemished.
  28 G3779 So G3784 ought G3588 the G435 husbands G25 to love G3588 their own G1473   G1135 wives G5613 as G3588 their own G1438   G4983 bodies. G3588 The one G25 loving G3588 his own G1473   G1135 wife, G1438 loves himself. G25  
  29 G3762 For no one G1063   G4218 at some time or other G3588   G1438 [2his own G4561 3flesh G3404 1detests], G235 but G1625 nourishes G2532 and G2282 comforts G1473 it, G2531 as G2532 also G3588 the G2962 Lord G3588 for the G1577 assembly.
  30 G3754 For G3196 we are members G1510.2.4   G3588   G4983 of his body, G1473   G1537 of G3588   G4561 his flesh, G2532 and G1537 of G3588   G3747 his bones. G1473  
  31 G473 For G3778 of this G2641 [2leaves behind G444 1a man] G3588   G3962 his father G1473   G2532 and G3588   G3384 mother, G2532 and G4347 cleaves G4314 to G3588   G1135 his wife, G1473   G2532 and G1510.8.6 [3will be G3588 1the G1417 2two] G1519 for G4561 [2flesh G1520 1one].
  32 G3588   G3466 This mystery G3778   G3173 is great; G1510.2.3   G1473 and I G1161   G3004 speak G1519 as to G5547 Christ, G2532 and G1519 as to G3588 the G1577 assembly.
  33 G4133 Only G2532 also G1473 you, G3588 everyone, G2596   G1520   G1538 [3each G3588   G1438 5his own G1135 6wife G3779 1so G25 2let 4love] G5613 as G1438 himself, G3588 and the G1161   G1135 wife, G2443 that G5399 she should fear G3588 the G435 husband!

  29 G3956 Every G3056 [2word G4550 1rotten] G1537 from out of G3588   G4750 your mouth, G1473   G3361 let it not G1607 go forth! G235 but G1536 if any G18 good word G4314 for G3619 edification G3588 for the G5532 need, G2443 let it go forth so that G1325 it should give G5484 favor G3588 to the ones G191 hearing.

  19 G3779 Thus G3956 are all G3588 the G1748 ones lying in wait G3588   G1438 for their own G5384 friends; G3752 and whenever G1161   G5456.1 they should be caught in the act, G3004 they say G3754 that, G3815 In playing G4238 I acted.
