25 (A)Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and (B)gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by (C)the washing of water (D)with the word, 27 so (E)that he might present the church to himself in splendor, (F)without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.[a] 28 In the same way (G)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 (H)we are members of his body.
