060:003:001
Likewise,
ye wives,
be in subjection to your own husbands;
that,
if any obey not the word,
they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;


060:003:002
While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.


060:003:003
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair,
and of wearing of gold,
or of putting on of apparel;


060:003:004
But let it be the hidden man of the heart,
in that which is not corruptible,
even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God of great price.


060:003:005
For after this manner in the old time the holy women also,
who trusted in God,
adorned themselves,
being in subjection unto their own husbands:


060:003:006
Even as Sara obeyed Abraham,
calling him lord:
whose daughters ye are,
as long as ye do well,
and are not afraid with any amazement.


060:003:007
Likewise,
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;
that your prayers be not hindered.


060:003:008
Finally,
be ye all of one mind,
having compassion one of another,
love as brethren,
be pitiful,
be courteous:


060:003:009
Not rendering evil for evil,
or railing for railing:
but contrariwise blessing;
knowing that ye are thereunto called,
that ye should inherit a blessing.


060:003:010
For he that will love life,
and see good days,
let him refrain his tongue from evil,
and his lips that they speak no guile:


060:003:011
Let him eschew evil,
and do good;
let him seek peace,
and ensue it.


060:003:012
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous,
and his ears are open unto their prayers:
but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.


060:003:013
And who is he that will harm you,
if ye be followers of that which is good?


060:003:014
But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake,
happy are ye:
and be not afraid of their terror,
neither be troubled;


060:003:015
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts:
and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:


060:003:016
Having a good conscience;
that,
whereas they speak evil of you,
as of evildoers,
they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.


060:003:017
For it is better,
if the will of God be so,
that ye suffer for well doing,
than for evil doing.


060:003:018
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins,
the just for the unjust,
that he might bring us to God,
being put to death in the flesh,
but quickened by the Spirit:


060:003:019
By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;


060:003:020
Which sometime were disobedient,
when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah,
while the ark was a preparing,
wherein few,
that is,
eight souls were saved by water.


060:003:021
The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh,
but the answer of a good conscience toward God,)
by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:


060:003:022
Who is gone into heaven,
and is on the right hand of God;
angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
