Ephesians 5:25-33 English Standard Version (ESV)

25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.[a] 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30 because we are members of his body. 31 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32 This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. 33 However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Kehillah in Ephesus 5:25-33 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

25 Ba’alim, have ahavah for your nashim, as also Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach has ahavah for the Brit Chadasha Kehillah and gave Himself up on behalf of her,

26 That He might bring her to kedushah, having given her tohorah (purification) by the tevilah of the mikveh mayim of the Dvar Hashem,

27 That he [as a Choson] might present to Himself [as His Kallah] the Brit Chadasha Kehillah in all her kavod TAMIM (unblemished, SHEMOT 12:5; VAYIKRA 22:20; YESHAYAH 53:7 9; SHIR HASHIRIM) and without wrinkle or any such things, but that she may be kedoshah and without blemish.

28 So also the ba’alim ought to show ahavah for their own nashim as their own gufim [BERESHIS 2:23-24]; the one with ahavah for his own isha has ahavah for himself,

29 For no one ever had sin’as chinom for his own basar but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach also does the Brit Chadasha Kehillah,

30 Because we are evarim of HaGuf HaMoshiach.

31 AL KEN YA’AZAV ISH ES AVIV V’ES IMMO V’DAVAK BE’ISHTO V’HAYU LEVASAR ECHAD ("Because of this a man will leave his father and his mother and will be joined to the wife of him and the two will be one basar.") [BERESHIS 2:24]

32 This is a sod hagadol, but I am referring to Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach and the Brit Chadasha Kehillah. [SHIR HASHIRIM 3:6-4:12; BERESHIS 2:23,24; 24:1-7; 41:45; 47:18; SHEMOT 2:21; RUTH 1:16-17; 3:9]

33 Each of you, however, should show ahavah for his isha as himself, and an isha should reverence her ba’al (husband).
