Be therefore imitators of God as beloved children. Walk in love, even as Christ also loved us and gave himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling fragrance.
For you were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord. proving what is well pleasing to the Lord. For everything that reveals is light.
Speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord Giving thanks always concerning all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God, even the Father.
Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the assembly, being himself the savior of the body. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word Even so husbands also ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord also does the assembly. For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and will be joined to his wife. The two will become one flesh. But the woman fears the man.
