Likewise, you 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;
2 While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
4 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 (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) of great price.
5 For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God (Elohim), adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands;
6 Even as Sarah obeyed Avraham, calling him ‘my lord (adoni)’; whose daughters you are, as long as you do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
7 Likewise, you 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.
8 Finally, be you all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous;
9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing; but contrariwise blessing; knowing that you are thereunto called, that you should inherit a blessing.
10 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.
11 Let him eschew (keep away from) evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and pursue it.
12 For the eyes of יהוה (YHWH) are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers; but the face of יהוה (YHWH) is against them that do evil. – Psa. 34:12-16
13 And who is he that will harm you, if you be followers of that which is good?
14 But and if you suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are you; and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
15 But sanctify God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) 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; – Isa. 8:12-13
16 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 Messiah (Mashiach).
17 For it is better, if the will of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) be so, that you suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
18 For the Messiah (haMashiach) also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to יהוה (YHWH), being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit;
19 By which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
21 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 (Elohim) by the resurrection of YHWH haMashiach;
22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)); angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto Him. – Psa. 110:1
