16 …And you will desire to control your husband, but ￼he will rule over you.”
21 And further, submit to one another out of
reverence for Christ.
22 For wives, this means submit to your husbands
as to the Lord. 23 For a husband is the head of his
wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the
Savior of his body, the church. 24 As the church
submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your
husbands in everything.
25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her 26
to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing
of God’s word. 27 He did this to present her to
himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle
or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and
without fault. 28 In the same way, husbands ought to

feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the
￼church. 30 And we are members of his body.
￼31 As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his
father and mother and is joined to his wife, and
the two are united into one.” 32 This is a great
mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ
and the church are one. 33 So again I say, each
man must love his wife as he loves himself, and
the wife must respect her husband.
18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting for
those who belong to the Lord.
19 Husbands, love your wives and never treat them
20 Children, always obey your parents, for this
pleases the Lord. 21 Fathers, do not aggravate your
children, or they will become discouraged.
4 These older women must train the younger women
to love their husbands and their children, 5 to live
wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do
good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then
they will not bring shame on the word of God.

7 In the same way, you husbands must give
honor to your wives. Treat your wife with
understanding as you live together. She may be
weaker than you are, but she is your equal
partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you
should so your prayers will not be hindered.
FOLLOW THE ROLES!

8 Finally, all of you should be of one mind.
Sympathize with each other. Love each other as
brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a
humble attitude. 9 Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t
retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead,
pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has
called you to do, and he will bless you for it.
