(A)Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,[a] (B)who, though he was in (C)the form of God, did not count equality with God (D)a thing to be grasped,[b] but (E)emptied himself, by taking the form of a (F)servant,[c] (G)being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by (H)becoming obedient to the point of death, (I)even death on a cross. (J)Therefore (K)God has (L)highly exalted him and bestowed on him (M)the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus (N)every knee should bow, (O)in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and (P)every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is (Q)Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

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. 31 (I)“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and (J)the two shall become one flesh.” 32 This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.
