Wives and Husbands

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:1

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:1

In the same way, wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, even if some disobey the word, they may be won over without a word by the way their wives live

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:2

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:2

when they observe your pure, reverent lives.

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:3

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:3

Don’t let your beauty consist of outward things like elaborate hairstyles and wearing gold jewelry,

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:4

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:4

but rather what is inside the heart ​— ​the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:5

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:5

For in the past, the holy women who put their hope in God also adorned themselves in this way, submitting to their own husbands,

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:6

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:6

just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. You have become her children when you do what is good and do not fear any intimidation.

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:7

Husbands, in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with a weaker partner, showing them honor as coheirs of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.

  
Do No Evil

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:8

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:8

Finally, all of you be like-minded and sympathetic, love one another, and be compassionate and humble,

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:9

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:9

not paying back evil for evil or insult for insult but, on the contrary, giving a blessing, since you were called for this, so that you may inherit a blessing.

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:10

For the one who wants to love life

and to see good days,

let him keep his tongue from evil

and his lips from speaking deceit,

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:11

and let him turn away from evil

and do what is good.

Let him seek peace and pursue it,

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:12

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:12

because the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous

and his ears are open to their prayer.

But the face of the Lord is against

those who do what is evil.

  
Undeserved Suffering

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:13

Who then will harm you if you are devoted to what is good?

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:14

But even if you should suffer for righteousness, you are blessed. Do not fear what they fear or be intimidated,

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:15

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:15

but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, ready at any time to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:16

Yet do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that when you are accused, those who disparage your good conduct in Christ will be put to shame.

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:17

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:17

For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil.

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:18

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:18

For Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring you to God. He was put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit,

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:19

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:19

in which he also went and made proclamation to the spirits in prison

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:20

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:20

who in the past were disobedient, when God patiently waited in the days of Noah while the ark was being prepared. In it a few ​— ​that is, eight people ​— ​were saved through water.

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:21

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:21

Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you (not as the removal of dirt from the body, but the pledge of a good conscience toward God) through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

Tools specific to 1Pe 3:22

Unchecked Copy Box 1Pe 3:22

who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God with angels, authorities, and powers subject to him.
