Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:1 - Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives,

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:2 - when they see your respectful and pure conduct.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:3 - Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear—

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:4 - but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:5 - For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands,

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:6 - as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you are her children, if you do good and do not fear anything that is frightening.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:7 - Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you[fn] of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:8 - Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:9 - Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:10 - For
“Whoever desires to love life
and see good days,
let him keep his tongue from evil
and his lips from speaking deceit;

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:11 - 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 on the righteous,
and his ears are open to their prayer.
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:13 - Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good?

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:14 - But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled,

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:15 - but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:16 - having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:17 - For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:18 - For Christ also suffered[fn] once for sins, 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[fn] he went and proclaimed[fn] to the spirits in prison,

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:20 - because[fn] they formerly did not obey, when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water.

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:21 - Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

Unchecked Copy Box1Pe 3:22 - who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him.
