Submission to Husbands


1 Wives, likewise, be asubmissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, bthey, without a word, may cbe won by the conduct of their wives,
2 awhen they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.
3 aDo not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel
4 rather let it be athe hidden person of the heart, with the 1incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands,

A Word to Husbands

7 aHusbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, bas to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, cthat your prayers may not be hindered.

Called to Blessing

8 Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be 1courteous;
9 anot returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary bblessing, knowing that you were called to this, cthat you may inherit a blessing.
10 For

a“He who would love life And see good days, bLet him 1refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit.
11 Let him aturn away from evil and do good; bLet him seek peace and pursue it.
12 For the eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, aAnd His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the LORD is against those who do evil.”

Suffering for Right and Wrong

13 aAnd who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good?
14 aBut even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. b“And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.”
15 But 1sanctify 2the Lord God in your hearts, and always abe ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the bhope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
16 ahaving a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.
17 For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

Christ’s Suffering and Ours

18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring 1us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit,
19 by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison,
20 who formerly were disobedient, 1when once the Divine longsuffering

page 1069

waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls,were saved through water.
21 aThere is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism b(not the removal of the filth of the flesh, cbut the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
22 who has gone into heaven and ais at the right hand of God, bangels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.


1 Therefore, since Christ suffered 1for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
2 that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, abut for the will of God.
3 For we have spent enough of our past 1lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.
4 In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.
5 They will give an account to Him who is ready ato judge the living and the dead.
6 For this reason athe gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but blive according to God in the spirit.

Serving for God’s Glory

7 But athe end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.
8 And above all things have fervent love for one another, for a“love will cover a multitude of sins.”
9 aBe hospitable to one another bwithout grumbling.
10 aAs each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, bas good stewards of cthe manifold grace of God.
11 aIf anyone speaks, let him speak as the 1oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that bin all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the 2dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Suffering for God’s Glory

12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
13 but rejoice ato the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that bwhen His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

1 PETER 5:10

14 If you are 1reproached for the name of Christ, ablessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 2On their part He is blasphemed, bbut on your part He is glorified.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a 1busybody in other people’s matters.
16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this 1matter.
17 For the time has come afor judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, bwhat will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
18 Now

a“If the righteous one is scarcely saved, Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?”

19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God acommit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.

Shepherd the Flock


1 The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a awitness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the bglory that will be revealed:
2 aShepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, bnot by compulsion but 1willingly, cnot for dishonest gain but eagerly;
3 nor as abeing 1lords over bthose entrusted to you, but cbeing examples to the flock;
4 and when athe Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive bthe crown of glory that does not fade away.

Submit to God, Resist the Devil

5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, aall of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for

b“God resists the proud, But cgives grace to the humble.”

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,
7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
8 Be 1sober, be 2vigilant; 3because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
10 But 1may the God of all grace, awho called 2us to His eternal glory

by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, 3perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
11 aTo Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God

A Psalm of David awhen he pretended madness before Abimelech, who drove him away, and he departed.

1 I WILL abless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
3 Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.

4 I asought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles.
7 aThe 1angel of the LORD bencamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.

8 Oh, ataste and see that the LORD is good; bBlessed is the man who trusts in Him!
9 Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints! There is no 1want to those who fear Him.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger; aBut those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.
