Colossians 3:18

18 Women, place yourselves under your own husbands, as was permitted in the Lord.

Ephesians 5:22-33

22 Women, yield ye obedience to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as also Christ the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 But as the church is subjected to Christ, so also wives to their own husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your own wives, as also Christ loved the church, and delivered himself up for it; 26 That he might consecrate it, having cleansed by the washing of water in the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing: but that it be holy and blameless. 28 So ought men to love their own wives as their own bodies. He loving his wife, loves himself. 29 For none at any time hates his own flesh; but brings it up and cherishes it, as also the Lord the church: 30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31 For this a man shall leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak to Christ and to the church. 33 But ye also altogether, let each so love his own wife as himself: and the wife that she fear her husband.

Ephesians 5:22

22 Women, yield ye obedience to your own husbands, as to the Lord.

11 Let the woman, in freedom from care, learn in all subjection. 12 And I trust not the woman to teach, neither to exercise authority over the man, but to be in freedom from care.

1 Peter 3:7

7 Men, likewise, dwelling together according to knowledge, as showing honour to the weaker vessel, pertaining to woman, and as co-heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers be not cut off.

1 Peter 3:1-7

1 Likewise, wives being subject to their own husbands; that also, if any believe not the word, by the turning back of wives might be gained without the word; 2 Having beheld in fear your pure turning back. 3 Whose outside let it not be of the interweaving of hairs, and of putting round of gold, or of putting on of garments, the arrangement; 4 But the hidden man of the heart, in the uncorruptedness of a mild and quiet spirit, which is before God of great price. 5 For so once also the holy women, hoping in God, arranged themselves, being subjected to their own husbands: 6 (As Sara listened to Abraham, calling him lord: whose children ye are,) doing good, and not fearing any terror. 7 Men, likewise, dwelling together according to knowledge, as showing honour to the weaker vessel, pertaining to woman, and as co-heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers be not cut off.

Ephesians 5:22-24

22 Women, yield ye obedience to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as also Christ the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 But as the church is subjected to Christ, so also wives to their own husbands in everything.
