1 Peter 2:25-3:7 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Wives and Husbands
3 In the same way, wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, even if some disobey the Christian message, they may be won over[c] without a message by the way their wives live 2 when they observe your pure, reverent lives. 3 Your beauty should not consist of outward things like elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold ornaments[d] or fine clothes. 4 Instead, it should consist of what is inside[e] the heart with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very valuable in God’s eyes. 5 For in the past, the holy women who put their hope in God also beautified themselves in this way, submitting to their own husbands, 6 just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. You have become her children when you do what is good and are not frightened by anything alarming.
7 Husbands, in the same way, live with your wives with an understanding of their weaker nature[f] yet showing them honor as coheirs of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.
