(5:22)
Wives,
    be subject to your own husbands,
        as to the Lord.
(5:23)
            For the husband is the head of the wife,
            as Christ also is the head of the church,
                He Himself being the Savior of the body.
(5:24)
But
    as the church is subject to Christ,
        so also the wives
            ought to be to their husbands
            in everything.
(5:25)
Husbands,
    love your wives,
        just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her;
(5:26)
            that He might sanctify her,
                having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,
(5:27)
            that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory,
(Lit., the church glorious)
            having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing;
            but that she should be holy and blameless.
(5:28)
                So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies.
                    He who loves his own wife loves himself;
(5:29)
                        for no one ever hated his own flesh,
                            but nourishes and cherishes it,
                                just as Christ also does the church,
(5:30)
because we are members of His body.
(5:31)

FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.

(5:32)
This mystery is great;
    but
        I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.
(5:33)
        Nevertheless
            let each individual among you also love his own wife even as himself; and
            let the wife see to it that she respect
(Lit., fear) her husband.
