1 Peter 3 ©
The apostle teacheth the duty of wives and husbands; exhorting all men to unity and love, and to return good for evil: to suffer boldly for righteousness' sake, and to give a reason of their hope with meekness and fear; taking especial care to suffer, as Christ did, for welldoing, and not for evildoing. The preaching of Christ by his Spirit to the old world. After what manner Christian baptism saveth us.
LIKEWISE, aye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, bthey also may without the word be won by the c*conversation of the wives;
lLikewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; mthat your prayers be not hindered.
But ysanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always zto give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and 4fear:
For eChrist also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, fbeing put to death gin the flesh, but *quickened by the Spirit:
jWhich *sometime were disobedient, kwhen once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, lwherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
mThe like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of na good conscience toward God,) oby the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
pWho is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
