Bible: Ephesians 5:22-28

Exhortations to Households 1 

5:22 Wives, submit 2  to your husbands as to the Lord, 5:23 because the husband is the head of the wife as also Christ is the head of the church – he himself being the savior of the body. 5:24 But as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 5:25 Husbands, love your 3  wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her 5:26 to sanctify her by cleansing her 4  with the washing of the water by the word, 5:27 so that he 5  may present the church to himself as glorious – not having a stain or wrinkle, or any such blemish, but holy and blameless. 6  5:28 In the same way 7  husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
