Colossians 3:19 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

19 Husbands, love your wives and don’t be bitter toward them.

Ephesians 5:25 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her

Ephesians 5:28-33 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

28 In the same way, husbands are to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hates his own flesh but provides and cares for it, just as Christ does for the church, 30 since we are members of His body.[a]

31 For this reason a man will leave
his father and mother
and be joined to his wife,
and the two will become one flesh.[b]

32 This mystery is profound, but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 To sum up, each one of you is to love his wife as himself, and the wife is to respect her husband.
