Bible Quote 5:21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
5:22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
5:24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

5:26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
5:27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
5:28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
5:29 After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church--
5:30 for we are members of his body.

5:31 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."
5:32 This is a profound mystery--but I am talking about Christ and the church.
5:33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
