1 Peter 3:5-7 New English Translation (NET Bible)

For in the same way the holy women who hoped in God long ago adorned themselves by being subject to their husbands, like Sarah who obeyed[a] Abraham, calling him lord. You become her children[b] when you do what is good and have no fear in doing so.[c] Husbands, in the same way, treat your wives with consideration as the weaker partners and show them honor[d] as fellow heirs of the grace of life. In this way nothing will hinder your prayers.[e]


  1. 1 Peter 3:6 tn Grk “as Sarah obeyed.”
  2. 1 Peter 3:6 tn Grk “whose children you become.”
  3. 1 Peter 3:6 tn Grk “doing good and not fearing any intimidation.”
  4. 1 Peter 3:7 tn Grk “living together according to knowledge, as to the weaker, female vessel.” The primary verbal ideas of v. 7 are contained in participles (“living together…showing honor”) but they continue the sense of command from the previous paragraphs.
  5. 1 Peter 3:7 tn Grk “so that your prayers may not be hindered.” Because of the length and complexity of the Greek, this clause was translated as a separate sentence.
