A Like­wise let the wives be in sub­jec­tion to their hus­bands, that even they which be­lieve not the word, may with­out the word be won by the con­ver­sa­tion of the wives: while they be­hold your pure con­ver­sa­tion cou­pled with fear. Whose ap­parel shall not be out­ward with broided hair, and hang­ing on of gold, or in putting on of gor­geous ap­parel: but let the hid man of the heart be in­cor­rupt, with a meek and a quiet spirit, which spirit is be­fore God a thing much set by. For af­ter this man­ner in the old time did the holy women which trusted in God, at­tire them­selves, and were obe­di­ent to their hus­bands, even as Sara obeyed Abra­ham and called him Lord: whose daugh­ters ye are as long as ye do well, and be not afraid of ev­ery shadow.

B Like­wise ye men dwell with them ac­cord­ing to knowl­edge, giv­ing hon­our unto the wife, as unto the weaker ves­sel, and as unto them that are heirs also of the grace of life, that your prayers be not let.

+ In con­clu­sion, be ye all of one mind, one suf­fer with an­other, love as brethren, be piti­ful, be cour­te­ous, not ren­der­ing evil for evil, nei­ther re­buke for re­buke: but con­trari­wise, bless, re­mem­ber­ing that ye are there­unto called, even that ye should be heirs of bless­ing. If any man long af­ter life, and loveth to see good days, let him re­frain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak not guile. Let him es­chew evil and do good: let him seek peace, and en­sue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the right­eous, and his ears are open unto their prayers. But the face of the Lord be hold eth them that do evil.

C More­over who is it that will harm you if ye fol­low that which is good? Notwith­stand­ing happy are ye if ye suf­fer for right­eous­ness’ sake. Yea and fear not though they seem ter­ri­ble unto you, nei­ther be trou­bled: but sanc­tify the Lord God in your hearts. |– Be ready al­ways to give an an­swer to ev­ery man that as­keth you a rea­son of the hope that is in you, and that with meek­ness and fear: hav­ing a good con­science, that when they back­bite you as evil­do­ers, they may be ashamed, for as much as they have falsely ac­cused your good con­ver­sa­tion in Christ.

It is bet­ter (if the will of God be so) that ye suf­fer for well do­ing, than for evil do­ing. + For as much as Christ hath once suf­fered for sins, the just for the un­just, for to bring us to God, and was killed, as per­tain­ing to the flesh: but was quick­ened in the spirit.

D In which spirit, he also went and preached unto the spir­its that were in prison, which were in time past dis­obe­di­ent, when the long­suf­fer­ing of God abode ex­ceed­ing pa­tiently in the days of Noah, while the ark was a-pre­par­ing, wherein few (that is to say, eight souls) were saved by water, which sig­ni­fi­eth bap­tism that now saveth us, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but in that a good con­science con­sen­teth to God, by the res­ur­rec­tion of Je­sus Christ, which is our right hand of God |– and is gone into heaven, an­gels, power and might sub­dued unto him.
