Ephesians 5:21-33 [ Verse 23 in Original: Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
21 and R315 F94 be subject to one another in the fear R316 F95 of Christ. 22 Wives, R317 be R318 subject to your own husbands, as R319 to the Lord. 23 For the R320 husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head R321 of the church, He Himself being R322 the Savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, R323 love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave R324 Himself up for her, 26 so R325 that He might sanctify her, having cleansed R326 her by the washing R327 of water with the R328 word, 27 that He might present R329 to Himself the church in F96 all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy R330 and blameless. 28 So husbands ought also to love R331 their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; 29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, 30 because we are members R332 of His body. R333 31 FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH. 32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love R335 his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects R336 F97 her husband.
