 <<  1 Petrus 3 >> 

1In the same way you women must submit to your husbands, so that if there are any of them who disbelieve the gospel they may be won over without a word being said,

2by observing your chaste and respectful behaviour.

3Your beauty should lie, not in outward adornment -- braiding the hair, wearing gold ornaments, or dressing up in fine clothes --

4but in the inmost self, with its imperishable quality of a gentle, quiet spirit, which is of high value in the sight of God.

5This is how in past days the women of God's people, whose hope was in him, used to make themselves attractive, submitting to their husbands.

6Such was Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him master. By doing good and showing no fear, you have become her daughters.

7In the same way, you husbands must show understanding in your married life: treat your wives with respect, not only because they are physically weaker, but also because God's gift of life is something you share together. Then your prayers will not be impeded.

8Finally, be united, all of you, in thought and feeling; be full of brotherly affection, kindly and humble.

9Do not repay wrong with wrong, or abuse with abuse; on the contrary, respond with blessing, for a blessing is what God intends you to receive. As scripture says:

10If anyone wants to love life and see good days he must restrain his tongue from evil and his lips from deceit;

11he must turn from wrong and do good, seek peace and pursue it.

12The Lord has eyes for the righteous, and ears open to their prayers; but the face of the Lord is set against wrongdoers.

13Who is going to do you harm if you are devoted to what is good?

14Yet if you should suffer for doing right you may count yourselves happy. Have no fear of other people: do not be perturbed,

15but hold Christ in your hearts in reverence as Lord. Always be ready to make your defence when anyone challenges you to justify the hope which is in you. But do so with courtesy and respect,

16keeping your conscience clear, so that when you are abused, those who malign your Christian conduct may be put to shame.

17It is better to suffer for doing right, if such should be the will of God, than for doing wrong.

18Christ too suffered for our sins once and for all, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God; put to death in the body, he was brought to life in the spirit.

19In the spirit also he went and made his proclamation to the imprisoned spirits,

20those who had refused to obey in the past, while God waited patiently in the days when Noah was building the ark; in it a few people, eight in all, were brought to safety through the water.

21This water symbolized baptism, through which you are now brought to safety. Baptism is not the washing away of bodily impurities but the appeal made to God from a good conscience; and it brings salvation through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

22who is now at the right hand of God, having entered heaven and received the submission of angels, authorities, and powers.
