1 Likewise, ye a, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any b the word, they also may without the word be won by the c of the wives;
2 While they behold your a b coupled with fear.
3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward a 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 a of a b and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
5 For after this manner in the old time the holy a also, who b in God, adorned themselves, being c unto their own husbands:
6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose a ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any b.
7 Likewise, ye a, dwell with them according to b, giving c unto the d, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being e together of the grace of life; that your f be not hindered.
8 Finally, be ye all of a mind, having b one of another, love as c, be d, be e:
9 Not a b for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a c.
10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him a his b from evil, and his lips that they speak no c:
11 Let him a evil, and do good; let him seek b, and c it.
12 For the a of the Lord are over the b, and his ears are open unto their c: but the face of the Lord is against them that do d.
13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be a of that which is good?
14 But and if ye a for b sake, c are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
15 But a the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give b to every man that asketh you a reason of the c that is in you with d and e:
16 Having a good a; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good b in Christ.
17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye a for well doing, than for evil doing.
18 For Christ also hath once a for sins, the just for the b, that he might bring us to God, being put to c in the flesh, but quickened by the d:
19 By which also he went and a unto the b in c;
20 a sometime were b, when once the c of God waited in the days of d, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were e by f.
21 The like figure whereunto even a doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
22 Who is gone into a, and is on the right hand of God; b and c and powers being made subject unto him.
