1 Peter 31 In like manner, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, even if any obey not the word, they may without the word be gained by the ▼ behavior of their wives; ▼
▼ 1) Or manner of life ; verse 162 beholding your chaste ▼ behavior coupled with fear. ▼
▼ 1) Or manner of life ; verse 163 Whose adorning let it not be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on apparel; 4 but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible apparel of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 5 For after this manner aforetime the holy women also, who hoped in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own ▼ husbands: ▼
▼ 1) Or husbands (as Sarah…ye are become), doing well, and not being afraid6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose children ye now are, if ye do well, and are not ▼ put in fear by any terror. ▼
▼ 1) Or afraid with7 Ye husbands, in like manner, dwell with your wives according to knowledge, giving honor ▼ unto the woman, as unto the weaker vessel, as being also joint-heirs of the grace of life; to the end that your prayers be not hindered. ▼
▼ 1) Gr unto the female vessel, as weaker8 Finally, be ye all likeminded, ▼ compassionate, loving as brethren, tenderhearted, humbleminded: ▼
▼ 1) Gr sympathetic9 not rendering evil for evil, or reviling for reviling; but contrariwise blessing; for hereunto were ye called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 10 For, ▼ He that would love life, And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips that they speak no guile: ▼
▼ 1) Ps 34:12 ff11 And let him turn away from evil, and do good; Let him seek peace, and pursue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, And his ears unto their supplication: But the face of the Lord is upon them that do evil. 13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be zealous of that which is good? 14 But even if ye should suffer for righteousness’ sake, blessed are ye: and fear not their fear, neither be troubled; 15 but sanctify in your hearts Christ as Lord: being ready always to give answer to every man that asketh you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear: 16 having a good conscience; that, wherein ye are spoken against, they may be put to shame who revile your good manner of life in Christ. 17 For it is better, if the will of God should so will, that ye suffer for well-doing than for evil-doing. 18 Because Christ also ▼ suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; ▼

▼ 1) Or into which few, that is, eight souls, were brought safely through water21 which also ▼ after a true likeness doth now save you, even baptism, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the ▼
