23 For athe husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the bhead of the church, He Himself cbeing the Savior of the body.
24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.
25 aHusbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and bgave Himself up for her,
26 aso that He might sanctify her, having bcleansed her by the cwashing of water with dthe word,
27 that He might apresent to Himself the church 1in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be bholy and blameless.
