Ephesians 5:21-33

21 submitting yourselves to each other in the fear of Christ. 22 Wives, submit to your own husbands as to the Lord. 23 Because a husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church, and himself the savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to the Christ, so also the wives to their own husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your own wives even as Christ also loved the church, and delivered himself up for it, 26 so that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it with the washing of water by the word, 27 so that he might present it to himself, the glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and unblemished. 28 So ought the husbands to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 29 For no man ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as also Christ the church, 30 because we are parts of his body, of his flesh and of his bones. 31 Separate from this a man will leave his father and mother behind, and will be bonded with his wife, and the two will be in one flesh. 32 This mystery is great, but I speak for Christ and for the church. 33 Nevertheless ye also, each one in particular, shall so love his own wife as himself, and the wife that she fear her husband.

Mark 7:13

13 annulling the word of God by your tradition that ye have delivered. And many such like things ye do.

Matthew 22:1-14

1 And having responded, Jesus again spoke to them in parables, saying, 2 The kingdom of the heavens is like a man, a king who made a wedding for his son. 3 And he sent forth his bondmen to call those who were invited to the wedding festivities, and they did not want to come. 4 Again he sent forth other bondmen, saying, Speak to those who were invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner. My oxen and my fatlings have been killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding festivities. 5 But having disregarded, they departed, one to his own farm, another to his merchandise, 6 and the others having seized his bondmen, abused and killed them. 7 But having heard that, the king was angry, and having sent forth his armies, he destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. 8 Then he says to his bondmen, The wedding is indeed ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 9 Go ye therefore to the crossings of the ways, and as many as ye may find, call to the wedding festivities. 10 And those bondmen having departed into the roads, they gathered together all, as many as they found, both bad and good. And the wedding was filled with those who were dining. 11 But when the king came in to see those who were dining, he saw there a man who was not clothed with a wedding garment. 12 And he says to him, Friend, how did thou come in here not having a wedding garment? But he was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the helpers, After binding him hands and feet, take him away and cast him out into the outer darkness. There will be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but few chosen.

1 Peter 3:1-10

1 Likewise the wives, being subordinate to their own husbands, so that even if any are disobedient to the word, they will be gained without a word by the behavior of the wives, 2 observing, in fear, your pure behavior. 3 Of which let it not be the outward world of braiding of hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on apparel, 4 but the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible, of the meek and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For this way formerly also, the holy women, trusting in God, adorned themselves, being subordinate to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose children ye became, doing good, and not being afraid of anything fearful. 7 Likewise the husbands living together knowledgably, as with a weaker vessel, apportioning worth to the female as also joint-heirs of the grace of life, for your prayers not to be hindered. 8 And finally, all be like-minded, sympathetic, brother-loving, compassionate, friendly, 9 not rendering evil for evil, or reviling for reviling, but instead giving praise, knowing that ye were called for this, so that ye might inherit a blessing. 10 For he who wants to love life, and see good days, let him restrain his tongue from evil, and his lips not to speak deceit.

Genesis 2:18-25

18 And LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone, I will make a help meet for him. 19 And out of the ground LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every bird of the heavens, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and whatever the man called every living creature, that was the name of it. 20 And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field, but for man there was not found a help meet for him. 21 And LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept. And [God] took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in place of it. 22 And the rib, which LORD God had taken from the man, he made a woman, and brought her to the man. 23 And the man said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cling to his wife, and {the two (LXX/NT)} shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
