THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Ephesians (Author Paul)

5:22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

5:23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

5:24Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

5:25Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

5:26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

5:27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

5:28So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

5:29For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

5:30For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

5:31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

5:32This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

5:33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

5:1Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
