Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:1 - In like manner, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, even if any obey not the word, they may without the word be gained by the behavior of their wives;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:2 - beholding your chaste behavior coupled with fear.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:3 - Whose adorning let it not be the outward adorning of braiding the hair, and of wearing jewels of gold, or of putting on apparel;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:4 - but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible apparel of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:5 - For after this manner aforetime the holy women also, who hoped in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection to their own husbands:
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:6 - as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose children ye now are, if ye do well, and are not put in fear by any terror.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:7 - Ye husbands, in like manner, dwell with your wives according to knowledge, giving honor unto the woman, as unto the weaker vessel, as being also joint-heirs of the grace of life; to the end that your prayers be not hindered.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:8 - Finally, be ye all likeminded, compassionate, loving as brethren, tenderhearted, humbleminded:
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:9 - not rendering evil for evil, or reviling for reviling; but contrariwise blessing; for hereunto were ye called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:10 - For,
He that would love life,
And see good days,
Let him refrain his tongue from evil,
And his lips that they speak no guile:
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:11 -
And let him turn away from evil, and do good;
Let him seek peace, and pursue it.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:12 -
For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous,
And his ears unto their supplication:
But the face of the Lord is upon them that do evil.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:13 - And who is he that will harm you, if ye be zealous of that which is good?
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:14 - But even if ye should suffer for righteousness’ sake, blessed are ye: and fear not their fear, neither be troubled;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:15 - but sanctify in your hearts Christ as Lord: being ready always to give answer to every man that asketh you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear:
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:16 - having a good conscience; that, wherein ye are spoken against, they may be put to shame who revile your good manner of life in Christ.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:17 - For it is better, if the will of God should so will, that ye suffer for well-doing than for evil-doing.
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:18 - Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:19 - in which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison,
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:20 - that aforetime were disobedient, when the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water:
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:21 - which also after a true likeness doth now save you, even baptism, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the interrogation of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ;
Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:22 - who is on the right hand of God, having gone into heaven; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
