1 Peter 3:1

In like manner (omoiwv).
Adverb closely connected with upotassomenoi, for which see 2:18.

Ye wives (gunaikev).
Without article. About wives see also Colossians 3:18; Ephesians 5:22; Titus 2:4.

To your own husbands (toiv idioiv andrasin).
Idioiv occurs also in Ephesians and Titus, but not in Colossians. It strengthens the idea of possession in the article toiv. Wives are not enjoined to be in subjection to the husbands of other women, as some think it fine to be (affinities!)

Even if any obey not the word (kai ei tinev apeitousin twi logwi).
Condition of first class and dative case of logov (1:23,25; 2:8), that is, remain heathen.

That they be gained (ina kerdhthsontai).
Purpose clause with ina and first future passive indicative of kerdainw, old verb, to gain (from kerdov, gain, interest) as in Matthew 18:15. See the future with ina also in Luke 20:10; Revelation 3:9.

Without the word (aneu logou).
Probably here "word from their wives" (Hart), the other sense of logov (talk, not technical "word of God").

By the behaviour of their wives (dia thv twn gunaikwn anastrophv).
Won by pious living, not by nagging. Many a wife has had this blessed victory of grace.
